Kitchen Sink: Not Orange
We've been working towards a cadmium free orange, and it just hasn't been working out. But that means that we have quite a bit of test glaze that can be dispensed and sold as a kitchen sink. Unfortunately, our camera's sensor is making this glaze appear more orange than it really is. It's much more peachy in real life than the photos imply, but it's still a really nice glaze.
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! 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 is stable 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.
