Click to enlargeSalt Glaze or Pumice/Mud?

10" x 3.5"

Aside from a brushed band of blue glaze and text wecorded with a few brush-hairs, only a thin wash of volcanic pumice/mud are fused onto the stoneware clay. It looks like salt glaze has looked when it interacts with clay's silica and forms beaded clusters. In salt-glaze the mini-blobs result from salt interacting with silica in the clay; in this bowl the mini-blobs result from pumice/mud settling and coagulating onto the clay's surface.
