Hello Bob, I don't know anything about this glaze but according to the
title, it might be worth a try. I'd be interested in your results. Maggie

This looks like a durable glaze to me - it totals 97.85 and I wonder if I
have the whole story - but as it is "looking good."

I would feel better about using a glaze with the colouring oxides in
smaller amounts inside food containers. This is one of those glazes. It
will probably craze on porcelain but might be ok on some stoneware clays.
