I am in need of a sage green semi gloss to a matt gloss. Can any one
give me a recipe that would be good on porcelain tiles. I need it to be
a cone 6. I am doing a fire place piece that was requested of me. Thank
you to all in advance.

Dear Cheryl,
There are several green cone 6 glazes in the archives. If you search under
author's address as and then FOR "Glaze test" you will see
a list of glaze tests. Test the greens that you are interested in on your
clay body because my body is mid range stoneware, not porcelain. Names
that come to mind are

Green with pink specs gloss green, tiny specs of iron
like color.
Xavier warm jade green warm green gloss
Wodo white with Cobalt & Rutile matt warm green, goes gloss with
transparent over it.
Sana Green warm green gloss

In addition to these glaze tests, you can search under Green and find many

Good luck,
if you need more specifics, email me off the list,
Best regards,
Alisa in Denmark

I found the recipe for SANA GREEN in the archives and
can attest that it looks great on c5 BMIX or
Claymaker's 'Cinnamon', fired to cone 6 in oxidation.
Lots of depth in a nice smooth satin matte surface.
It looked overfired on Navajo Wheel clay for some
reason -- perhaps too much iron oxide in that clay.

Lee, This Sana Green recipe was just recently on
Clayart from someone. I apologize for not remembering
who put it on. I tried it and found it to be a really
nice satin finish soft yellowish green that fit my
clay body very well. It has a pretty low coefficient
of expansion, and looks good, though not as yellowish,
without the rutile. I know this doesn't add up to 100,
but that's the way it was posted. Here it is. Good
Luck, Paul Lewing, Seattle
