I developed this glaze recipe during the 2002 school year at Clemson. I have not used it much in the past few years since, my work is mainly fired in atmospheric kilns such as soda or wood kilns now. This glaze really starts to move and drips off the pots if fired in an atmospheric kiln. Clemson Tenmoku comes out very well in cone ten reduction kilns. The glaze isn’t exactly Clemson University’s purple and orange, but close enough that I decided to name it Clemson Tenmoku.
The recipe is percentage by weight when mixing up 1000 grams of dry glaze materials.

I’ve added a few more cups, tea bowls, and shot glasses to my etsy store. These new items come from a variety of firings. I have a couple yunomi that were fired in a soda kiln. These came out very good. One was glazed with a chun glaze and the other was glazed with a tenmoko. The tea bowls were all wood fired, glazed with either a shino glaze or a nuka glaze that I made from rice hull ash. The shot glasses were also glazed with a shino glaze.
I am very happy to announce that one of my tea bowls was accepted in the Kansas City Clay Guild’s Juried Teabowl National 2011 show.
Here is my tea bowl that was accepted in the show:
If you can not make it to Kansas City for the show you can view all entire show on the KC Clay Guild’s Facebook page.
Here I am all set up and ready for the Spring Art Mart at the Hub Bub in Spartanburg, SC.
I bought some clay supplies today from my regional clay supply store Highland Clays. I’m going to start firing some of my work as cone 5 oxidation. This will allow me to explore some ideas that I don’t think would work well with wood firing.
