Apologies for not having written anything in a while, a long while. I’ve been on vacation. I’ve started firing beads again only the last few days. I’ve come up with a few bead combinations. I am planning on making this one a permanent part of my glaze collection that I’m slowly putting together.
However, I am at a loss for what to call this glaze and thought I would hold a small contest and ask for help in naming this particular glaze.
So this contest is going to continue until I see something that I really like, and if I like YOUR suggestion, I will contact you and send you some thank you beads (at no cost to you of course) … so leave an email addy in your comment.
This glaze is brushed over a terracotta clay, and goes transparent in spots, though the bead is completely covered with glaze. Have fun! And hey, thanks!
These were all great suggestions. I’ve had a hard time deciding, but in the end, I think I liked the rhyme factor in the first one: Cantaloupe Smoke.
At some point I may end up using the others and if/when I do, I’ll get in touch and send off some free beads.
Eileen B — please email me with your address and I will send you your beads. Thanks so much!
