My Top 13 Pottery Glaze Colors (for now)

October 22nd, 2008 · 6 Comments

I have roughly 44 different glaze colors that I use from time to time to adorn my pottery. But, like any artist, I tend to gravitate toward a few favorites that I use regularly.

For example, the Pottery Apple Bakers that I have on display here and in my Etsy online catalog are done in Grape, Autumn Frost, and Galaxy. And most of my stock Pottery Apple Bakers are in those colors.

You can choose from any of the 44 colors (I’ll be adding a page soon to show them all) if you order items, like my Ceramic Pottery Apple Bakers, from me. But in honor of the Thursday Thirteen blog I’ve picked what we’ll call my top 13 glaze colors to show you here. This is subject to change at my whim (or if my wife tells me I should have different favorite colors).

    There are several colors there that I would gravitate toward, too…
    Paprika, Galaxy, and Calico

    I think it’s the Paprika that caught my attention first. :)

    Galaxy, Hunter Green and Redwood would be the closest to match my house. TFS

    These are all great glazes! Even the “wildflower” would be great on your apple baker. I did wheel thrown and handbuilt pottery for years. I absolutely love clay. I was lucky to stand as guest artist assistant to a number of great clay artists back in the 80′s when I was in college. The late Ken Furgeson, Don Reitz, Paul Soldner and Mark Chadwick to name a few.
    I still have a couple of wheels and enough kiln brick for a raku kiln stored out here somewhere… just need enough time and money to build one more studio! LOL Great memories, great TT!

    Wow, Jayme, I am in awe of your work!

    I don’t recall seeing a bright yellow glaze on pottery before. Is it fairly rare?

    My favorite of those you show for Thursday 13 is Antique Iron.
