Brad - Thanks for taking the time & energy to go through the color
tests. Were these tests done on stoneware or porcelain? I'm asking
because the backgrounds are a grayish color and I didn't know if that
was the color from the photo images or actual color.
Are you using feldspar & kaolin in your glazes simply to retard glaze
flow to avoid using extra catch basins?
Thanks, Bill
