Hey folks, just wanted to post something that I've made - this mouse chalice I created it by throwing in in two parts the top and bottom then sticking them together with slip!

Wow, this is great.  There's something a little creepy about it--in a really good way.  I could imagine being surprised by it at the bottom of a bowl of soup, or something like that.  Smiley

Very lovely!  That little mouse is beautiful!
Rutile glaze? I have only ever used a rutile slip, but the glaze is very nice. Same variation in color that I get with the slip but it looks like it comes with a little less danger (I have had to chip pieces off of kiln shelves before). It reminds me a little of a glaze we use in our studio called "church lady white." How do you fire/what kind of kiln do you use?

I fire all my pieces in an electric kiln, its all just down to the reative nature of the glaze. had a look on google to see if i could find your church lady white glaze but couldn't really see an example of it...

I tried mixing it up as a slip and it just wasn't thick enough. Thanks for your help!

Yeah, unfortunately we get really sloppy with the names of the glazes in the studio. Everyone just knows what we mean when we say "ramos blue" or "church lady white" Smiley
I will have to look up the recipe in the fall when I go back, or at least find out the "real" name of it. It is an AWESOME glaze.
