SALT GLAZE

Salt glaze is a technique whereby salt is introduced into the kiln, splitting the sodium from the chlorine. The sodium attaches itself to the silica in the clay body creating different effects depending on the clays and slips used.

These can range from the more traditional “orange peel” textures to high gloss streams of molten ash runs. Our attraction to salt glaze is the combination of working with the barest essentials required for pot making – clay, fire and vapour – which combine with the unknown alchemy contained in the heat of the kiln.
