THESE GLAZES HAVE NOW GONE TO A GOOD HOME, THANKS
The Art Technician at Amery Hill School, Alton has been in touch. They have a selection of glazes in the department that can no longer be used because they don’t have the necessary data sheets, so for health and safety reasons they can no longer have them in the department. However it seems a shame to throw good glazes away so if any potter would like them to fire and experiment with at home please get in touch with Mo directly and arrange to collect.Email: M.Rizzi@ameryhill.hants.sch.uk
Here is a list both Earthenware and Stoneware. They have been premixed, some have dried and others just need a very good mix…
Tan cream speckle
low sol burgundy
opaque green leather
opaque tin white
opaque sea speckle

The casing of both in a bad state but Kathy suggested they could be stripped out and used for Raku.
They could be still used as kilns but need three phase electricity.
