A mysterious glaze appeared in our lab. The name written on its
container is Egyptian Blue Raku. In The raku fire it turns out very dry,
light blue with blue speckles. I tried it at 04 in the electric kiln
and it became a watery blue. I have tested it over other glazes with
some really nice results. I would like to replicate this glaze but no
one here at Augusta State University knows where it came from. Does
anyone recognize this glaze? Thanks, Carissa, Chief Cook and Bottle
