Looking for a blue glaze

Have you picked up a copy of Mastering Cone 6 Glazes by Roy and Hesselberth? There are several blues in there. I use the variegated blue which has amazing effects when layered with their other glazes. I highly recommend the book.

This glaze is BLUE. On porcelain it is ghastly! But on the odd orangy-brown clay I use and fire to cone 5, it's very nice--deep blue with white sugary patches and specks. I'm not sure where I got it, but it's undergone a few changes. I would not expect it to be food-safe. I use it on planters and vases.

1.5 cobalt carb. Yes, that much.
If it's too thick, it gets sort of dull and pasty. I dip it. I'd be curious to know how it works on your clay.

I'm using a dark cone 6 clay.
firing in a Skutt kiln. oxidation
I'm looking for a blue glaze with visual texture
Anything similar to a chun blue?(reduction)
The blue glazes I've tried are flat, uninteresting.

is a VERY active list. Quite frankly, too much traffic for me toread everything. I delete 90% or more of the messages without everreading them. It is moderated so the SNR is quite high, but many ofthe topics that are discussed are of no interest to me. The nice thingis that there is participation from well known artists who regularlycontribute to the journal literature, or who have written books. Ofpertinence to this thread, the authors of the MC6G are active on thelist, both with regard to their book and with their other experienceand expertise.

I get the Digest version of this List, it takes much less time to download, doesn't clutter up your inbox, and is altogether easier to manage.

Rather than get the digest, most email programs will let you set up a filter and just filter the mail into a separate mailbox. It doesn't clutter up the rest of your email this way, but it's easier to save individual messages.
