Glaze from Wood Ashes and their Color Characteristics
This study is to analyze the characteristics of typical Korean wood ashes from twelve trees, oak tree needles and pine bark, which are common in the area, and to suggest their applications in ash glaze making. The chemical analysis of the ashes shows that the main component of wood ash is CaO while wood bark ash consists of $SiO_2$, and leaf ash consists of CaO and $SiO_2$. The results of the study are as follows: Ashes made from the wood of Acasia, Popular and Jujube contained relatively high amounts of Fe$_2$ $O_3$ and MgO compared to other tree ashes. The ashes had yellowish green color glaze. From the result of W analysis they presented the highest chroma. Therefore these ashes are good for making transparent glaze. From the result of W analysis Grapevine, pear and oak wood ashes containing the highest amounts of Fe$_2$ $O_3$, MgO, P$_2$O$_$5/ and MnO presented yellowish green color glaze compared to other ashes are suitable for making opaque glazes because of their showing stable and opacity phenomena. Pine tree, Platanus and Zelkova wood ashes consist of high amounts of CaO and P$_2$O$_$5/ compared to other tree ashes. So they showed the most vivid and bluish green color glaze among 12 ashes. Therefore, they would make a good celadon glaze. Birch, oak and chestnut tree ashes have high content or MnO which affects on glaze color with small amount. These ashes presented yellowish green color not as much strong as Acacia ash, Poplar ash, Jujube tree ash. These are good for Irabo glaze.
Key words: Wood ashes, Transparent glaze, Opaque glaze, Irabo glaze, Celadon glaze
