Here are a few tiles from my last red Oxblood recipe. I had to fire it twice to get more red to come out. Although its not too strong of a glaze color (red) it really needs a slower cool down to be more effective as a red glaze.

I have been trying a new glaze and it highlights texture quite well. Reds are not overly popular in bonsai pottery, except for some flowering types (azaleas and pyracanthas) and tropicals. I was happy when Sue from the Jaxonville club purchased this red oval pot for her collection.
I have also been trying some other red glazes recipes and I have not been as happy with the results.
