Kitchen Sink: Banana Hammock
At Midnight Ceramics we run countless tests in our pursuit of new and exciting glazes. Sometimes we make something that is really great, but not quite ready for production. Rather than waste these happy accidents, we would rather send them to you!
We're getting closer to a yellow glaze here at Midnight. We've honed in so far that out kitchen sink batches are starting to look really yellow! This glaze is a summer squash sort of yellow; more yellow than butter, but not quite as yellow as a lemon. It's not really banana colored, and definitely not banana flavored, but we couldn;t resist naming something "Banana Hammock". This glaze is stable and won't run much unless you apply way too much or fire it way too hot.
This glaze cannot be reproduced.
This glaze is stable when overapplied or overfired. (Three coats of glaze was applied to the test tile before being fired to Cone 5 with a natural cool.)
Directions for use
Shake well before use. Apply three flowing coats to ware that has been bisque fired to △05/06. Glaze fire to △5/6. Allow at least ¼” of bare clay at the bottom of the ware to account for running. It is highly recommended that you run a vertical test tile before applying to your ware. Differences in application and firing can make this glaze more or less runny, possibly damaging kiln furniture or artwork.
This glaze is lead and cadmium free and is food safe when applied and fired in accordance with directions. Dinnerware producers must test their ware as differences in application and firing can produce different results.
