Comments: This glaze is by Pete Pinnell. It was originally developed as a cone 9 glaze, but one day a student tried it at cone 6 and found it to work. It is quite stable at cone 6; however it is right on the edge of not being completely melted. It needs to be fired to a full cone 6. It also needs to be applied a little on the thick side. It will pinhole in some situations.
