While looking through my glazes to answer the question on a textured glaze, =
found my Pennell Strontium Matt Weathered Bronze/Blue glaze recipe. It is
actually 2 in one. The base glaze is the same, with one set of colorants =
get the Bronze, the other you get more of the blue. The only notes I have =
the recipe state, it is a very dry matt glaze, good for sculpture, but not =
functional ware. I note that it came from CM supplemental 94 pg 31

Why wouldn't this glaze work for functioal ware? I've used it on some large
platters and it looks good. I can't think of anything in the receipe that
wouldn't be OK for functioal ware.
