Always good to go to the source. These were originated in

This is the original recipe, but there are a gazillion
variations. I hope you paid attention to the type of clay and/or slip
the potter used because this has a big effect, along with the way it was
fired. Your shino probably won't look like the one you admired,
unless you are very lucky ;-) :

kaolin 12
spodumene 36.1
kona F-4 42.2
soda ash 9.6

Studio Potter Dec 1992 is the best article on Shinos.
