Hello everyone, I have just spent the night rakuing and have a question.
I found some glaze that I think is called "Partial Lubbock Red, Black,
Blue" I
was wondering if any of you Raku ppeople would happen to have the recipe.
It looks like a reduction Oribe Green. Really beautiful glaze. Could not
find the recipe in the studio. Hope that someone could help me out.
Thanks so much, Jennifer in Alpine

Jennifer, et al;

This is one of the glazes developed by James Watkins and Sara Waters,
who both teach at Texas Tech. From the notes I have from school, this
is the formula for Lubbock Red Black and Blue:

Lubbock Red Black & Blue (raku)

Colemanite 70
Ball Clay 30

Tin Ox. 1.5
Black Cu Carb. 5
