Thin Grey

September 20, 2009

This is the new color that We have been making recently. It is very light grey. It is somewhat sublime and is difficult to capture with the camera.


Here is a small dish from a soba set in grey:


And a close up showing the color as well as the small bubbles in the glass:


This color as well as the green tint color are both made in the pot from materials used for ceramics glaze. It is fun trying new combinations of materials and seeing the result. This grey uses nickle and cobalt and is similar to recipes used in Murano centuries ago. When I make glass with it I often wonder what it was like in those old factories…..
