Influenced by the humble earthiness of tea ceremony bowls, Amaco Shino glazes give a traditional high-iron look to any high fire clay body. They are beautiful on textured or smooth clay bodies and blendable to get the right degree of matte or glossy surface. Shino glazes can also be layered with the Potters Choice line of glazes for different effects.
The Shino glazes yield wonderfully varied colors depending on their application thickness. A light application favors the warm rust base, a heavier application favors their opaque coloration. Surfaces with texture and pattern will enhance this effect. These glazes are formulated to be 100% mixable for color and finish.
