Soubriquet over the pond asked to see the results of my Daly grids. Sure! Here is the better one of the two. Next time I do a grid I will follow Greg Daly’s advice and put very few glazes on a grid… My glaze application is a bit too thin and the overlap cells are small. I guess the results would be valid if I brushed my glazes, but I’m most interested in data relevant to thicker applications (e.g., dipping). Also, clearly it is important to use a very good brush for even application of the glaze (interesting article in the current issue of Pottery Making Illustrated about different brushes and glaze application). Not a bad start and lessons learned for next time! For example, Bright Sky Blue in combo with Jeannie’s Purple seems to do some funky stuff. Here is the more successful of the two grids (glazes are listed below the tile, starting at the bottom left corner).


How to read the grid:
The horizontal lines (x-axis) are a glaze above others.

The line running from the bottom left corner to the top right corner represents each glaze over itself.

The vertical lines (y-axis) are a glaze below others. So, the far left hand bottom corner is J Purple over J Purple, the next cell is J. Purple OVER C. Blue, then J. Purple OVER J. Red and so on. Next row starts with C. Blue OVER J. Purple, then C. Blue OVER C. Blue and so on :

Glaze order (see here for more information about these glazes):

  1. Jeannie’s Purple
  2. Caribbean Blue
  3. Jeannie’s Red
  4. Variegated Brown-Blue
  5. Variegated Blue
  6. Bright Sky Blue
  7. Raw Sienna
  8. Licorice Black

Still lost???  😉 The bottom left corner is Jennie’s Purple on Jennie’s Purple. Top right corner is Licorice Black on Licorice Black.
