I'm looking for a couple of shiny black/shiny white glazes that file either
Cone 6 or Cone 9. I checked the Database and saw a couple of recipes, but
they're all untested. Does anyone have anything they use and like personally?

Try this for a black glaze:
Barium Carb. 2
Cobalt Carb. 3
Iron Oxide 4
Manganese Diox. 2
Chrome Ox. 1
This will be very glossy and very black from about ^8 to ^11. To
bring down the firing temperature, add a little Lithium Carbonate.
About 3% will bring it down to ^5 or so. If the Barium in this scares
you, you can probably leave it out without much change.

Try this one on for size. It is a Bright Shiney White I got from Harry
Berman. He calls it HT white. It is stable and is best matured to cone 10
but should work well at 9. One caution: avoid drips on application. Make the
glaze thick enough to get firm adhesion as opposed to a runny one.

I found a great shiny black last week. I used a black tenmoku using 15% iron
and 10% barium carbonate.
