Our range of glazes draws inspiration from our natural surroundings – the rough softness of lichen, the layers of peeling bark on a plane tree. Applied by dipping, pouring, or a combination of both, they complement the character of each lamp; and, like nature, they often create pleasingly unexpected results when they emerge from the kiln.
Dip and Pour
This glaze takes its name from the black-green hue that’s achieved when multiple layers are applied to the clay’s surface. With one or two layers, the glaze creates a more brown finish. Bottle Green’s high-polished sheen is suited to pieces with multiple intersections, edges and joints, which allow the glaze to pool and feather when fired.
We often combine a thick layer of Bottle Green with Matte-Black, as seen here in the Hudson and Sag Harbor lamps.
