Owen Oribe

Oribe-cone 10 (red.)
Custer feldspar-29.3
Bone ash-1.0
Copper carbonate-5.2

I got this glaze from the web, from a potter named Ben Owen, of Segrove, North Carolina. It's a matt green, black where thick, and when the soda hits it it becomes a brilliant, glassy turquoise. Love it. Thanks, Ben!

Great glaze on a great mug. Totally makes me want to pick it up. The Owens gang is quite the family of potters.
