I am searching for a plum colored glaze recipe. It would need to be
capable of firing ^6 or ^9 oxidation. Can anyone help?

You could test a Mason stain to get your color. If
you do this, read the fine print describing what
ingredients should be avoided in your base glaze and
FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS. The is a particular oxide
which wipes out the red in such a stain. I forget
what it is but the Mason notes should tell you.

You could also try coloring a base with Cerdec
inclusion pigment Intense Red 10% + cobalt carbonate

Keep good notes and Good luck.
