I had to laugh when I saw the topic. I have some really pretty red-green pottery. Unfortunately, it's not intentional. The studio where I take classes has a glaze called Pete's Cranberry. It's supposed to be a deep red but all too often comes out a green celadon type color. My classmates and I are absolutely frustrated with it. I think it depends on where the Ceramics technician puts the pieces in the kiln.

Hello, I don't make my own glazes but do experiment with colors and various commercial glazes to get a custom color,I periodically make crystal glaze experiments and sometimes they come out quite nice.I really enjoy making and creating the pieces but don't really enjoy glazing.
