Yellow seems to be the one color of glaze that is always sought and never quite obtained in the Cone 10 range. I vaguely remember seeing a Ceramics Monthy about 5 or 6 years ago that had an article about a bright yellow glaze called "Million Dollar Yellow." Does anyone have that glaze?

Since I am posting about yellow, I noticed Aaron's request for yellows which, because the site was still being set up, was posted in the wrong forum. I thought I would reproduce the yellow glazes posted there:

Quote:
Aaron, I have three yellow glazes you can try:

PALE YELLOW REDUCTION
Cone 10, reduction
pale, earthy yellow, matte

This makes a big class sized batch, so adjust accordingly. The kiln I use is a bit odd, so try a sample first to make sure it works in your kiln.

Potash 4500
Barium Carbonate 2000
Zirconium Silicate 1500
Talc 1000
China Clay 700
Whiting 300
then add Red Iron Oxide 300


FIRE YELLOW REDUCTION
Cone 10, redux
matte yellow with lots of red pinprick sized dots
We use this glaze at Granite Comm. Ed. classes. Always reliable, but I don't know where the formula originally came from. So, Linda, if this is your glaze, I hope you don't mind if I share it.

Custer Feldspar 50
Kaolin 50
Dolomite 25
Whiting 10
Tin Oxide 5.5
Bone Ash 8
Red Iron Oxide 1
Rutile 2


Finally, I have this formula that I cut out of a magazine. I have never tried it, but the picture shows a glossy, light but bright yellow. Created for porcelain.

BRIDGET DRAKEFORD PORCELAIN YELLOW
Cone 10 (2300 F), Oxidized
gloss yellow on porcelain, transparent

Feldspar 64
Dolomite 13
Whiting 13
China Clay 10
add Yellow Stain 5

Be sure to post feedback on how they work for you.

Regarding the "Million Dollar Yellow" glaze you read about; I believe it is referring to the glaze that Otto Heino developed.  He and Vivika had worked on it for years and he got the recipe down about ten years ago.  He provided a company in Japan with a undisclosed number of yellow pots....for a million dollars!  We visited his pottery last summer and one article he had mentioned that he keeps the recipe in his head, and had not shared it with anyone yet.

I have heard of million dollar yellow.  It was mentioned in a Geil Kiln ad in Ceramics Monthly a year or so ago.  Was not Otto using it.  Don't remember if they gave the recipe there or just said that was the name of the glaze used on the piece shown.

When I taught at Pioneer Craft House, we had a studio glaze that was pale yellow - white breaking deeper yellow/orange at the edges.  Too thick and it looks like marshmallow, but thin it is really nice.

Juanita posted this question in another topic.  I hope that by moving it to the Yellow Glaze topic we can find an answer:

Does anyone have a recipe for a cone 10 reduction glaze called "Yellow Rust"?  It is a glossy glaze that can go orange, to tan, to green depending on how hot it fires or how thick it is.  We have used it at the Kimball Art Center, but there is not a recipe in the studio glaze books for it.  Thanks!  Juanita

Bridget Drakeford Porcelain Yellow is a poor fit on B - MIX. Crackles everywhere, artistic but not food-friendly. I solved​ that problem by adding a cup of Glossy White C10 to my 1000 gram test batch. Very lovely color. A cup of any plain white recipe would help the glaze fit BMIX and other stoneware. -Renee Wendy (cone10wren)
