Manganese is the new Cobalt. Haha. Ok, maybe I can't back that up at all… but there have been some killer iridescent glazes (@lisazolandz) showing up in my feed lately! @ceramicmaterialsworkshop just posted a sweet tile with a manganese crystalline glaze today. They've got me thinking back to the scanning electron images I took back in grad school at Utah State. Here's one from my vault. It's a 5000x zoom in of a manganese crystal nucleus. Pretty wild, eh? If memory serves, this glaze was a variation of David Shaner's glaze, which was given to my by John Tilton. 68% Custer, 2% EPK, 27.5 Manganese Dioxide, 2.5% Granular Manganese. . . _________ #manganese #glazetests #research #art #ceramics #glaze #SEM #porcelain #microscope #clay #mn #kiln #crystal #firedinaskutt #testing #ceramicglaze #artistsofinstagram #science #element #ceramicart #crystalline #glazerecipe
