The only Shamo Red I know of is a combination by Val Cushing of Mamo and
Shaner Red. But they are cone 10 glazes,
Hope it helps you on your way,

The article in Clay Times (September/October 2005,
http://www.gloriasingerpottery.com/clay_times_1.html) on Gloria Singer
mentions the Shamo Red @ Cone 6. The recipe given on pg. 56, however, is
for Cone 10.
I've got it on my list of things to "play" with in the near future, but
haven't done anything yet.

Shamo was a 1/2 and 1/2 combination of Shaner Red and Mamo glazes. These are
cone 9-10 reduction glazes. Both recipes can be found using an internet
search or probably in the clayart archives.

sharing my tests with shamo for ^6:
as someone previously mentioned:
shamo is 60% shaner red and 40% mamo.
i used rounded formulas (shaner red and mamo recipes are both
available in val cushings book), had no k200 so i used more
custer instead (next time i will try subbing neph sy for the k200).
for ^6 i did tests using 5% 3124 and 5% 3134 (in separate
test batches!). both came out very well on standard's white
stoneware 245 and 112. i also tested on standard 306; and
sheffield's brown which came out much darker as expected.
the 3124 may be ever so slightly nicer in general, but the 3134 on
white came out good on the test tile. color is red when applied
thinly (i spray), and yellow when thicker or when ash is used over it.
the thicker application breaks nicely over texture (at least
it did on the test tile -- not so evident in the pot picture supplied!).
i fired with a slow cool of 125 degree drop per hour between
1900 and 1400 and let it cool naturally after that.
here is a picture of the shamo w/ 5% 3134 (applied very thinly) on
white stoneware, with vc ash sprayed on the top half.
all the best,
(hope i've adequately contributed!)
