There's no way to adequately credit everyone involved in building what has become the Glazy database. Throughout the years, thousands of ceramic artists have refined their recipes and generously shared them with others via the mail, publications like Ceramics Monthly, and email lists like Clayart. Glazy is simply the latest incarnation of a "recipe sharing" tool.
The Glazy database of ceramic recipes was originally seeded with data from Linda Arbuckle'sopen in new window GlazeChem databaseopen in new window, John Sankey's glaze databaseopen in new window (which is based on the extensive work by Alisa Clausenopen in new window), and Louis Katz'sopen in new window Hyperglaze databaseopen in new window.
The Glazy website was created by Derek Auopen in new window.
John Brittopen in new window, Alisa Liskin Clausenopen in new window, Terry Rorisonopen in new window and Tara Hagenopen in new window were early contributors and included their glaze tests with images.
Glazy is in continuous development, guided by technical input from a number of potters around the world. In particular, Pieter Mostertopen in new window and Matt Katzopen in new window have provided invaluable insights and suggestions.
