Colors clockwise from top right: Spring Green, Aqua, Periwinkle, Yellow Pear, Frost, Garnet, Rosa, Grape, Cornflower Blue, and Honeycomb. After several adds and subtractions for 2012, these are the current, and lush, satin colors from my studio. Each satin has a corresponding glossy version for the interiors, for aesthetic contrast as well as function. (Pots that are mostly interior, like plates and some bowls, are glazed completely in gloss.) Every item in my online Pottery Shop is labeled with it’s color name so you can search by color to find your favorites.
I run extensive tests to develop new colors for my palette, and then mix large amounts of each glaze by hand for dipping and pouring. There is a Glaze Testing album on my Facebook page with more pix of the steps behind the results, and a bit more about my techniques and materials on my Process page. I enjoy adding new colors, even though the process to get there is laborious. The end results are very satisfying…and ColorFULl!
