Hansen's Old Seto cup

This small cup has seen lots of use - sometimes daily for over 10 years now. Everything goes in the dishwasher so I can safely say that this glaze is fairly resilient - if you can make it work. It has a narrow window of about cone 8 oxidation, and needs a little help controling the ash glaze flow. The clay body is an Flint Hills iron free porcelain from Bracker's Good Earth Clays, Inc. Visit them at:

Old Seto Yellow #2, cone 8-10 /Leach
Feldspar 25 (I used Custer)
Medium ash 50 (grill, fireplace, unwashed)
Ochre 25 (yellow ochre, calcined, I think)
