Copper red glazes...

Sometimes when you want the glaze to be green it will come out red! This is a set of beakers which had copper in the glaze. Gerry thought he had put them in a part of the kiln where there would be plenty of oxygen so they would be green - but no....
In this firing the reduction took place throughout the kiln, even the bottom - which is unusual, so all the green pots came out red. They look great - except the customer wanted them in green.
