hansen 5 x 20 glaze again /gas/electric ^6 glazes

Hi John...the 5X20 glaze takes color very well I found...a beautiful meaty
white with 10% zircopax; I particularly like this blue..the base glaze,
oxidation, with .5 RIO and 3% cobalt carb. The following greens are very
nice on a light or porcelain body. Additions of zircopaz 9%,tin5%, copper
7%, a greyed blue green where double dipped; Additions of rutile 5%, and
copper2% to the base, yield a transparent yellow green that settles nicely
revealing the throwing ridges.

These variations have NOT been tested for food safety, and were all fired in

Is anyone trying the ^6 insight glazes in a gas/electric reduction
atmosphere? The satin mat, 1214Z for instance. I am thinking of testing my
clay body that I have been using in oxidation, with an iron slip coating
after reading Mel's post on Rhodes (or Shaner's) 32. Let me know how you do
