I have pretty much given up on trying to use limits. For one thing, they are all over the map, depending on whose limit formula you use. In the second place, my experience has been that the real ingredients you use to conform to a limit, cause wide variations in glaze fit and texture.. even though they are almost identical as far as oxide composition is concerned. as John says, The only real way to get what you are looking for is to know a little glaze chemistry and keep experimenting till you zero in on these characteristics.

I have been doing ceramics for about ten years now, mostly as a hobby. I like to incorporate metal and gemstones into my pieces which I electroform. I develop my own glazes and try to keep to a waxy or semi-mat finish. I like the "arts and crafts" look and the subdued glazes they used on their pieces. Fire mostly to cone 5-6
Lately I have been working more on combining ceramics, metal, wood and even weavings into sculptural pieces.
