Credited to:John Hesselberth
All tests fired on white, iron flecked, mid-range stoneware.
Fired to cone 6 (1220c) in oxidation.
100c (212f) per hour to 600c (1112f)
150c (302f) per hour to 1100c (2012f)
100c per hour to 1220c (2228f)
15 - 30 minute soak depending on matts and glosses used.

Natural cool down to 150c (approximately 15 hours)
30 Nephelite Syenite
21 Gerstely Borate
2.0 Chrome oxide
1. Cobalt oxide
All raw materials measured up or down to nearest whole decimal.
Oxides used on percent basis to a 100 gram batch of glaze.
A extraordinary smooth gloss that is silk like in feel. Color is a deep
green ground with a veil of dark blue, giving
the illusion of a very deep teal at first glance. Upon closer inspection,
this glaze has a very exciting surface. It has
two layers of color optically playing together, on an icy smooth surface.

Thanks for the credit, but it doesn't belong to me. I don't know the
original source of the Floating Green glaze, but the leach testing of it was
done by Diane Woloshyn. With her permission I just posted her results on my
site along with other tested glazes. Diane may have developed it herself--I
just don't know.

Thanks John, but I didn't develop this glaze, only tested it. Don't know
where it came from.
