Aventurine Glazes: I Have One! A Gift!

Aventurine Glazes:  I Have One! A Gift!

I recently received a gift from my good friend, Alanis Su, upon her return from a visit to Taiwan.  It was a small bowl with the most incredible and interesting glaze – it sparkled as though gold flecks had been added to the glaze!  I had never seen anything like it!  and had no idea what it was!

By the way, the pictures don’t do it justice!

Then in two separate blog posts, I heard about a new glaze called aventurine!  One blog post was by Peter’s Pottery from New Zealand, in which he states: “One new glaze that I am particularly interested in, is an aventurine glaze. This is a special type of low alumina glaze that contains an enormous amount of iron oxide. If all goes well the glaze will be full of tiny sparkling crystals, rather like a chocolate coloured night sky full of stars!”

The other blog post was by John Britt, USA, Facebook Page from ClayClub Blog featuring this video:

 

However, it’s been out there for quite a while.  Here’s some more info on it if you want to know more:

So it seems that I have a sample of one of the new hot things in glazing!
