This glaze will likely not be useful in a reduction firing due to the
presence of zinc oxide, which easily reduces to the metal around
1750F. Since the metal alone boils at approx. 1700F, it will then
volatilize, perhaps with nasty effects on the glaze. The vapor is
poisonous, to boot.
Some say that it helps in Cu reds, but I've never see it have a
favorable effect on the glazes I use in reduction. I leave it out if
I see it in a reduction recipe since it's usually a small amount. But
this recipe calls for 10%. Likely would need to replace it with
another flux and then ya got a different glaze.
And this glaze is pretty low in the silica department, too. In
reduction, without the zinc I'd think that would be even more of a
Hamer and Hamer has more info on Zinc.
