This is a variation of a glaze Warren MacKenzie gave our session at
Penland, called Reeve Green. I fire in in ^10 reduction. Try it over a
temmoku, too, for an interesting spotted black effect with the teal.

Lisa and Ginny, we just test fired an incredibly intense blue-green
glaze we stole from CM in May 96, I think. It's in the article about
the mural. The recipe is called Grass Green, but you can vary the
Chrome to CObalt ratio to get the color you want. We got unbelievable
color but big variation in surface. To get a really tight glossy
surface it must be fired hot.

This yeilded the most intense teal I have ever seen. It's sort of a
flat color, but there are small cobalt speckles her and there. If it
doesn't fire hot it's pretty lifeless, though, so be careful. Good
