That's not to say that you can't make something beautiful with a clear glaze over a buff stoneware!! But you have to go in expecting that final product.
Hope this helps :-)

In my experience, whenever you put a clear over a brown clay it will not be as dark and rich as the foot. You could always just leave the clay unglazed....
I just did a test glazing with a clear commercial glaze on brown stoneware and it looks really great!
I mean the color of the clay became more prominent, bright. And it is not matt at all! Now the foot looks dull.
I used Liquid Ceramic Glaze from Nasco.
The only "BUT": It is a low fire glaze, so I glazed it at ^06 over the bisqued tile.
It is definitely too low the temperature for the stoneware clay.
What would be the solution for that? Maybe run it through the kiln at ^5, e.g. to mature, then do the low ^ glazing?

Why not jut do a cone 5 glaze?
Because the clear glaze goes matt at ^5!
As you said earlier (see above): "whenever you put a clear over a brown clay it will not be as dark and rich as the foot"
which happens only at the high cones.

could also rub iron oxide on the body as well, since it will act as a flux in the thicker parts so it will provide some varation in color in the body.
