(An orangey tinted clear glaze - I like it for stone ginger bottles
and other old-timey things) Here are a couple of standards from the
Richmond Potters Club, and a few of my own formulation that have
worked well in ^6 oxidation. They aren't revolutionary (my exciting
ones have things like barium in them, or are less predictable for a
classroom situation) but they have been reliable, and allow for some
play. They all calculate out to well within the INSIGHT limit
formulas for maturity at ^6. If anyone tests these and comes up with
problems, new ideas, good variations etc. could they let me know?
I'll look forward to a larger list being posted to clayart. Veronica
