C.M. May, 2000

Tested on white, mid range stoneware, fired to 1220c, oxidation.

20 Dolomite
20 Frit 3134
20 Spodumene
20 OM4 Ball
20 Flint

5,0 Tin Oxide
0,5 Cobalt oxide
4,0 Rutile

Local frit for 3134

Comment in C.M. A speckeld blue. Produces a variety of blues and =
browns when used with Plum and Cream.

Resulted in a stable, gloss bluish/grey even glaze.

Over Chris Wolff's Plum glaze, it did it's "thing" as described in the =
Ceramics Monthly. Gave a lot of nice streaking and opalescence like =
blues and pooling.
Personal: The light blue on it's own is a nice "dove" grey and it gives =
a very nice falling and streaking over the plum. I also like it because =
the receipe has such
easy proportions. I am drawn to round numbers.

Best regards,
Alisa in Denmark

Alisa, I am enjoying looking at your results. Thank you so much for doing so
much work! Would you mind sending the formula for the Plum Glaze?
