Candy, while I suspect that someone will send you a copy of the
glaze formula off list, it would be in your best interest to get
yourself a copy of the widely acclaimed "Mastering Cone 6 Glazes" by
John Hesselberth and Ron Roy, both of whom contribute to clay art on an
extensive basis. Unlike some who have published information they are
very forthcoming with answers to any questions which you may have and
seem to be on a mission, so to speak.
I can honestly say that the book is the best that I have read on
Cone 6 glazes to be fired in an electric kiln. It is succinct, detailed
and puts forth a readily accessible method of analyzing glazes in
general which will lead to an understanding of why a glaze does what it
does. This, along with being a responsible potter and using glazes for
functional purposes that are stable and durable, compose the thesis of
the book. I believe that it should be used as a text for Glaze Study in
Universities and Community Colleges and for potters/ both private and in
Hope this helps
