ash glaze from the fireplace

Hi Theresa,
I've tried this with Ash ash and Maple ash from my fireplace at home,
scooped right out of the firebox. Dry dusted on with a kitchen seive or
wet, either way. My Ash ash yeilds a tan/light brown that breaks greenish.
Washed, it's a bit lighter and much more matte. I'd say try it on the
inside first, mine's wicked runny.

Good luck!

I would like to make a single fire ash glaze from the ashes in my fire
place. Has any one ever done this before? Do you have any suggestions.
