Hi Mel,

Nice! How much tin in the glaze? I've been able to vary the purple by varying the tin: more tin, more purple. And the three-four hour oxy hold is the secret, particularly for my 27 cu ft fiber kiln which cools too fast anyway.

Just wondering,
Roger, in AZ heading for Paul Herman's place tomorrow, then back to OR for a couple of weeks, then back to AZ via California.
