saltglaze and unity

updated mon 30 sep 96 on sat 21 sep 96

Here's the idea: Take a reduction glaze (c/10) and modify the unity
molecular formula so that the resultant glaze can accomodate the
additional sodium from the salt kiln.

Has anyone played with this at all? I have run some tests with some
success. It seems that some fluxes behave very differently in the sodium
vapor atmosphere that they do in a gas reduction kiln.

Just throwing the idea out there to see what anyone else may have done.

Much thanks,
