Kitchen Sink: Jorts
We've been working on several new blue glazes behind the scenes. Some of them are looking really promising, and we're excited to release one this summer. Meanwhile we have quite a bit of test glaze that can be dispensed and sold as a kitchen sink. This glaze likes to be applied pretty thick. The tile in the photo has 3 layers, and the mug was painted with 5 layers of glaze. Just be sure not to get it too thick, because it can be a fairly runny glaze.
At Midnight Ceramics we run countless tests in our pursuit of new and exciting glazes. After we've completed a round of testing, we combine all of our test batches into a bucket, dispense it as a Kitchen Sink and list it for sale. Kitchen sink glazes reduce waste, offset the cost of our R&D and are generally available at a discount. It's a win-win-win.
This glaze cannot be reproduced.
This glaze is moderately runny when overapplied or overfired. (Three coats of glaze was applied to the test tile before being fired to Cone 6 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.
