A slightly modified recipe from John Britt's Cone 10 glaze book (pg 102, Chromium Greens).

This glaze contains significant levels of Barium Carbonate and Lithium Carbonate and should not be used on any food surface.

Like many of the Barium glazes I like, this one exhibits a variety of colors and textures through breaking.
