Peacock Glaze Bowl

Designer: Carmen Allen



  1. Begin with properly fired cone 04 stoneware bisque. Moisten a sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Using the AC-222 Medium Writer Tip Kit, apply SW-303 Manganese Wash in a pattern around the rim. We applied 2 rows of “w”s so there is a space to add the Stroke & Coat.
  3. Exchange the cap on you SC for an AC-224 Plastic Detailer Cap and apply SC-29 Bluegrass as dots inside of the loops made with the wash.
  4. Allow to dry and repeat steps 2 and 3.
  5. Allow the glaze to dry.
  6. Apply 3 coats of SW173 Amber Quartz to both the inside and the outside of the bowl. Allow the glaze to dry in between coats and avoid glazing the foot.
  7. Use a damp sponge to wipe away any glaze that may have gotten on the foot.
  8. Fire to cone 5/6. *Sample piece was fired to cone 6*

We also created a plate using the same technique view the Peacock Glaze Plate project here!
