Fall in love with the Bungaloware™ Collection of glazes!
Glazes are what makes pottery. Together with the form itself, each glaze is unique, personal, and tells a story. At Bungalow Potter, the Bungaloware™ glaze palette is full of brilliant, rich colors that express my Bungalow Pottery philosophy. With that–and you–in mind, color is the crucial component that brings my potteries to life. Each piece is customizable to a glaze and a clay body.
Each glaze collection features its own rich palette of colors, specifically picked for each clay body and the chemistry of firing process. Discover the rich history of each glaze, and why each one has a special place in my heart and on each of my pieces.
Albany Slip Brown
In the late 1800’s, two-toned pots were coated with a soda-salt glaze, which was clear, and an infamous Albany Slip Brown, a natural material originating in Albany, NY. Recent construction removed this natural material from existence, but in heritage to its orange peel-like responses, this is a Potter’s favorite. Perfect for celebratory pieces, accents, and really special pieces.
Jasper, a naturally-existing stone, occurs in Jasper is an opaque rock of virtually any color stemming from the mineral content of the original sediments or ash.
While Far Eastern treasured the green jasper, leading to its near-eradication and scarcity, red jasper is a beautiful silica-based stone, with near-translucent properties. Popular with my guy friends, wives for their husbands, historic homes, and sophisticated palettes.
With its blue and browns, this beautiful titanium-based mineral breaks beautifully over surfaces and textures on pots, making this a natural craftsman favorite. While rutile is often red, this titanium-based alloy is used in paints and electronics. Mine happens to be beautiful, and of course, pottery friendly. Elegant in victorian and historic settings. Excellent choice in commissioned pieces.
Deep Red FireBrick
A Craftsman palette would be incomplete without a deep, red, rich glaze such as my Deep Red FireBrick. While red brick was initially used to make building visible in heavy fogs in Victorian London, the Craftsman tradition of the bungalow and its earth tone palette are quite familiar with one another. In fact, the Bungalow Pottery is in a Brick Bungalow, so there’s that. Lovely among white appliances and cupboards, as well as gifts to modern enthusiasts.
With its deep red richness and bluish-green breaks, we at Bungalow Potter love the richness and earthen deepness this glaze offers. With the beauty of iron’s red, this deep glaze breaks with lighter greens and translucent tendencies. Great for historic homes and living room accents.
This sophisticated, rich blue is a must-have. Preferred in restaurant service, serving pitchers + bowls, as well as in drinkware, this deep blue has a beautiful tone and spectacular sparkle. Other than my signature Craftman Blue, it remains my most popular color yet. Perfect on kitchen serveware, tall vessels, and centerpieces.
Signature Craftsman Blue
Also called Floating Blue, or Blue Hare’s Fur, this glaze is my favorite and most popular of all my glazes. With its pooling patterns, brown-breaks on textures from its rutiles, and whispers of white, its clear to see why everyone loves this beautiful display of colors and reduction-based kiln patterns. Classic styling that everyone loves.
Iron doesn’t always mean red either, but can be green when fired. This glaze provides my glaze family with a sophisticated, rich green tone and the beauty of its reduction-style tendencies to break and flow like its Iron Lustre cousin. We love this glaze in combination with Iron Lustre or clear in custom sets. Popular among those with a modern taste.
If it weren’t for Instagram filters, photoshop, and camera programs, most folks wouldn’t even know what sepia is. While in photography, it can only be used to tone black and white photographs, light Sepia is the perfect glaze for anyone’s collection. Preferred on the the most elegant pieces–with its neutral, warm tones, it compliments almost any color palette, style, or kitchen. Excellent for wedding and anniversary gifts.
When I walked into my bungalow for the first time, I decided my den would be a golden gourd color, it spoke to me. The bones of my house cried for its original craftsman colors. The golden hues and the yellow-tones worked beautifully with the craft white–which has a creamy off-white tone to it. This glaze embodies that golden gourd color perfectly. Perfect for those with a warm palette and small spaces.
