Dear all
A new millennium for those that use ten units.
I hope that the changes I promise myself will come about; not
just the old dogmas in different guises.
I would like to know if there are any references books or papers
that study the forming of crystals in a stone ware glaze and their effect on
color and coloring oxides in the glaze ?
At what temperatures do mulite and other silicate crystals or alumino
silicate crystals- et all- form and their sizes relative to the temperature?
What nuclei , if any need ,to be formed to make the crystals?
Good luck to you all
