Glazes are difficult to find by name. Names of glazes
change with location, age, etc. You gave no information
at all about the glaze that you're seeking. What cone does
it fire to? What color(s) is it?
Did you look in the archives for it? There are hundreds/
thousands of glazes in there by now, by name, description,
cone, recipe and analysis.

I will have to assume that you are referring to Rookwood Pottery's Tiger's
Eye glaze, which was their staple back around the turn of the century
(1900). I've never seen any of their glaze formulae printed. The story I
heard is that they were kept secret, and then either lost or destroyed when
the pottery closed. If you want to trek to the Cincinnati Art Museum and
arrange with the curator to go to the basement, you can see a huge sampling
of their glaze tests. Very interesting things they did, but not public
knowledge about their glazes, I'm afraid.
