Glaze test for Turquoise cone 6 redux, fired to cone 6 ox.
Glaze tested on white midrange stoneware fired in electric oxidation to =
100c p/h to 600c (212f - 1112f)
150c p/h to 1100c (330f - 2012f)=20
100c p/h to 1220c (212f - 2228f)
cool down max. per hour to 1100c=20
cool 80c per hour to 800c
shut off kiln
61.54 Neph. Syenite
20.88 Strontium Carb.
6.59 Ball Clay
3.30 Lithium carb.
3.5 Copper carb.
1.0 Epsom salts
Note: All raw materials are measured up or down to the nearest whole =
Colorants or additives to a 100 gram test batch are measured in percent =
to the 100 gram test batch.
Covering, smooth, well melted turquoise matte glaze. Where thickest, =
there are tiny white crystals. A very bright
Turkish blue matte.
Used Talc instead of Lithium carb.
Same glaze appearance but slightly greener.

This gonna craze - it could be a stable glaze as it has enough alumina and
silica but also a pile of sodium - sodium promotes solubility and so does
copper - so test to be sure if you plan to use it on the business (food)
side of ware. I like the idea of subbing talc for lithium - talc has a low
expansion ( does not help much in this case) and not the toxicity that
4% bentonite is not a bad idea in this cause (2% is normal) cause this
glaze is going to want to settle out hard - good idea re the Epsom Salts
