Pete's Tomato Red #3

The idea for this glaze grid comes from Pete Pinnell's recent article about tomato red glazes in the Clay Times May/June 2008 issue. I took the number 3 glaze in his article and modified it to use Nepheline Syenite instead of Kona F-4 feldspar.

I fire vertical test tiles of these glazes along with the grid. The results are often strikingly different than the grid tile.

Glaze number 13 on the flat grid does not look bright red. On the test tiles I have fired it is a bright tomato red color.
