Firing Temperature: Δ5½-7
Atmospheres: Oxidation, Neutral
Surface Type: Glossy - Semi
Transparency: Semi-opaque

An adaptation of a cone 10 recipe I found online, probably originated from Ceramics Monthly. The original called for pearl ash (potassium carbonate), which I omitted, and added Ferro Frit 3110 to bring it down to mid-range and add the alkali.
Shows a good variability, from a matte chartreuse where thin to a dark glossy-mossy green where thick. Slight crazing on stoneware where thick. Pleasant feel. Fired in electric, slow cooling.
