"I find the frustrating part with ceramics is also the exhilarating part. All could be lost in the kiln if a glaze doesn’t work out, or if something was too wet or too dry. It doesn’t happen often but it is also the addicting part — that moment of opening the kiln is like Christmas morning! Did all my hard work pay off? Did something exciting happen that I wasn’t expecting?
Tania Rustage's photos on Instagram @taniarustageceramics capture the charm of her whimsical ceramics with attitude. Tania uses commercial glazes, underglazes, and stains; sponging, brushing, dipping or spraying them to get the effects she wants. She generously shares before and after pictures of the glazing process on Instagram.
Enhance Your Work with Interactive Pigments. Georgie's Interactive Pigments are versatile ceramic pigments that create different results with each clay or glaze you pair them with.

Give your work a spring update with glazes that are vibrant, energetic and versatile. Choosing the right glaze to compliment a ceramic form might be one of the most exciting parts of the ceramic process and yet with so many glazes available it can be hard to know where to start. So, today we have rounded up some of our customers' favorite, tried and true green glazes that you can start using in your studio today.
We are going to help you turn those glazes that don't spread evenly and dry way too fast into glazes that you will love to brush with.
Sometimes we have a great glaze that works well when it is dipped, poured or sprayed on but try and brush with it, and that is a whole other issue. Choosing glazes formulated for a brushing application and using glaze additives in glazes that are not already formulated for brushing is the key to making that great glaze behave beautifully when brushed.
