Raspberry Ripple

Really exciting result from the kiln today……totally unexpected…and also unexplained.

Remember this?


I left the blacky chunky clay unglazed to avoid the problem of sagging.  I glazed the grogged stoneware clay with copper red a few weeks ago, but was uninspired by the result.  I decided to refire with some porcelain slip added onto the glaze.  I was expecting the slip to shrink and crack creating a ‘scorched earth’ effect……but instead I got this amazing raspberry ripple finish.  The slip was applied very thickly and it appears to have melted into the glaze.  The big question is….can it be recreated??
