Stoneware Combinations

 

Browse through this gallery to view some of the beautiful combinations possible with Mayco Stoneware Glazes when fired on white stoneware clay, fired to cone 6 in oxidation.

Storm Gray over Sea . . .
				
Storm Gray over Sea Salt

Process
3 coats of SW-118 Sea Salt were brushed to the left ⅔ of the tile.
After the Sea Salt has dried, 3 coats of SW-137 Storm Gray Emerald were brushed over the right ⅔ of the 
tile, with Storm Gray brushed lightly over the Sea Salt intersection (middle ⅓).

Interaction (middle ⅓):
This combo will produce a variegated and lustrous gray with ivory patterning amongst crystal bursts from 
Sea Salt. Where the combo breaks over texture, more ivory is exposed with an overlay of variegated gray. 
Finishes to a smooth feel and fluxes where the glaze is heavy. This combo has movement but it stable 
enough that it will not run off a vertical surface.
