All About Shino and Ash Glazes.
Hi, your work is extraprdinary. I'm a potter from Thailand and really interested in japanese ceramic and zen asthetics. I've been trying to make my own shino recipe, some work but some didn't. Nice to meet you here!Have a good day
Lee,Where do you get your mogusa clay? Do you mix a version of your own. I have a japanese potter friend who compares it to fire clay...is this your oppinion as well? I have been experimenting trying to come up with several japanese style clay bodies...I know that in Kyoto they make faux versions of regional clays using a shigaraki style clay as the base. One account says they take that base and add kaolin until it gets the right consistency. Any thoughts?
Yes, I have experimented with Mogusa just using clay with very little added feldspar. Try fireclay or mix it with kaolin. Mogusa is not refractory at cine 11, but when you whisk in it with a matcha whisk, it sounds sift like Raku. Good luck!
