Would you share your simple glazes that work at cone 6.

Subject: [Clayart] electric firing after gas

there have been posts about people shutting down studios. it can be
very sad.  but, there is hope after gas.

i have worked very hard to create a new clay body that is the
same as reduction gas firing.  it works.  most of you have seen
all the stuff about it.

in the same way, i have made a couple of very simple glazes that
work wonders at cone 6-7. and i speed fire.

i have a very small paragon kiln that is 60 amps. it is quick.

so, using mel6 clay...my equal amounts of glaze materials...a couple
of `new` 3 gallon black pails full of colored glazes...i could make pots for
the next twenty years and have a ball.  small space in the corner.

i have never had so much `fun` in my studio.  colleen and i just laugh
when we open the kiln. bright colors with a dark brown clay body.
anyway...think about it.  don't give up yet.
