Most people include ^6 within the 'high fire' definition.

Is it possible to get a true rutile blue in cone 6 reduction? I revisited a
Ceramics Monthly article (Feb. 1981) by Peter Shrope and without actually
saying so, he indicates that you have to be "high firing". His recipies are
used extensively around here in Seagrove, especially one for Cone 11.
(recipe below). Has anyone experimented with the typical Neph. Sye
substitution to lower the temperature in this or any other glaze? P.S. this
is not intended to get into the philosophical blue discussion that has been
going on. I am enjoying a wide pallet of cone 6 reduction glazes, thanks
mainly to R. Malmgren, but have yet to get more than a flat "bluuuu".
Thanks - Bobbie Listerman
