In a previous post about blended glazes I mentioned my original attempts to blend existing glazes while trying to come up with a substitute for an Albany slip glaze. Illustrated is a small bottle with the results, called NAA (No Albany Albany). The bottle was white slipped and had black slip decoration under the replacement glaze. Though this looks a bit washed out from the direct light, in person it is a rather rich and deep amber with a nice, oily appearing surface. The glaze came about by combining two glazes that I had been working with at a 60/40 blend and in all honesty, the blend was nicer than either of the two glazes on their own.
