Let's see. I fire to cone 5 or 6 in an electric kiln. Currently using Laguna's B-Mix cone five. This glaze (Spectrum's Textured Kiwi Fruit) is also lovely on flat surfaces, where it is a subtle mixture of the green and blue, but on the deep texture, it is quite different. The outside of the pictured dish is entirely different. I have used a lot of commercial glazes and I often layer them, but I haven't seen quite this distinct separating into several colors emphasizing the carved details. Many of the reactive glazes do show more than one color, but not so precisely. There...that's a lot of words, but I hope you see what I'm after. Of course I could make lots of textured tiles and buy lots more glazes and try them all out...but I'd much rather ask for others to report their experiences here!! Thanks!

Threw my first pot in 2008 in a teaching studio (Charlie Cummings), and was hooked. Classes at the local university, and I now have a studio in the cellar of our 160 year old house. Surrounded by furnace, water heater, and water softener, I have an old sink and a floor drain. Everything I need is there, plus a kiln in the garage. I'm in heaven!
In my 8th decade, I'm doing this for fun and giving away anything I make that turns out okay. I'm getting better. Don't plan to stop until my poor hands give out!
