This looks like it may be a stable glaze - I have recalculated it with frit
The calculated expansion is on the low side without the zircopax - even
lower with 10% so it would be prudent to test this well on the clays you
are using before comitting to it. If you need to know how to test for fit
let me know.
It would not be hard to raise the expansion rate by the way.
With all that Neph Sy I thought it prudent to add some bentonite to try and
avoid hard panning of the glaze.

Add 10% zircopax for opake shiny white at cone 6.
