First: Chris, you did not lose your book, someone swiped it, and then some
other person borrowed from the thief and dunked it. That is dreadful but
certainly not "losing a book". Someone out there owes you $$$$

I confess that slowly I am computerizing my glaze recipes. Mainly for easy
access for passing along.

For myself, I still use old fashioned notebooks, spiral bound ones, though
now I use a bunch of black ones with red spines which come from China.

What I like about "real" notebooks is that I write down test results,
changes in material, (as the grand move from Colemanite to GB) and
incidental notes. Much of what I know about what goes wrong with glazes
comes from earlier notes. All dated.

Dear Friends,

I like the fireproof option, a permanent record.

Make a good sized sample tile and write the recipe on the back in Iron =

Best regards,
