Do I get crushes?  You bet!  Especially when I see a copper red! Tom Turner is my lastest crush.

Recently, I saw Tom Turner on Facebook -here is his link- Click here.

Tom is a long-time potter and quite the expert on porcelain as you can see from his video on YouTube:

What I saw amazed me and intrigued me!  Copper Reds in Electric?  Tom gave the link to his article in 2012 Ceramic Arts and Perception Technical No. 35Click Here

Tom says about these photos above:  “From the retro (collection), a chemically reduced copper red oxblood fired in an electric kiln, no atmospheric reduction, all in the glaze.”

He does proper gas kiln cone 10 copper red reduction as well, but these are amazing!  Gotta love those copper reds!

And gotta love Tom Turner!

Peace out!  Lovelies
