Hello Marian and Ivor,

I'm casually following this thread just to try and absorb some information.

Your comments on the hematite glaze got me really interested so I quickly
Googled for some recipes or information and came across this interesting
paper. Now
don't get turned off by the fat it has to do with crop circles in England.
It does have a fascinating report on the iron glazed plant material
found in the area.

I have not checked any credentials so have no idea as to it's merit but it
is interesting.
