I believe "Mayco"...carries a lowfire beaded glaze..
ck. with your local ceramic supplier & do a test on
it...Firing temp would be ^06 or ^O5, if I remember
correctly.. It would come in a 4 oz. bottle, so little
cost would be involved.

Back during the bus trips to one of the venues at NCECA this year and I
think it was at the University of Indianapolis where we saw a seated
ceramic female figure with an interesting translucent "beaded glaze" on
areas of the body. Scattered around the figure were larger clear glass
globules. I would like to know the name of the artist if someone can recall.
Could have possibly been graduate student work. The work was exceptionally
nice. Also if any of you have experience working with "beaded glazes" and
could recommend some low-fire recipes or commercial beaded glazes to test I
would appreciate some information on those as well.

surfaces were beaded, and very nice, maybe yours had had stains aded for
