It felt very dimensional shift / spacey so it was the first music that came to mind.

 

It is really cool, I couldn't help but speak out in awe when first looking at the stuff :D If only I could work out what the crystals are, what kind of crystals do I have, what kind of glass is it?? Looks like the texture helps seed crystals.

 

These are high in whiting so I guess a calcium something. If I remember correct it is only Kaolin, soda feldspar, whiting, a little cobalt carb and rutile.


In Topic: Varying The Thickness On Test Tiles To Produce A Slow Cool.

I think it probably only hints at the difference a slow cool could make, having never tried it I am not sure but I will be trying it out.

 

I have a, what is probably classed as a rutile blue that seems to be very picky. Every firing it changes. Read a little about it really needing a slow cool and having it look the best on my thickest bowl not fired with a slow cool. Sometimes it comes out a dark blue/brown with no variegation. I thought it was a thickness issue but could be cooling. Probably both.

 

Could be good to run test that show if a slow cool could work, but then you probably know it might anyway. I might be rambling, it is 4:30am

Mark do you use three props per shelf? I always thought that would be a bad idea having two corners unsupported but now I have seen a few people propping that way.
