Alisa- I'm pretty sure I posted this recipe several years ago - it's
one from The Clay Studio
in Philadelphia, where I was once an associate artist. They had ( and
still have, I'm sure)
a nice palette of cone 6 reduction glazes, of which this was one. It
was a very nice bright mat turquoise
in reduction, which broke to brown on edges, and could develop some
crystals if slow cooled.
