Emerald – Cone 5/6

Gerstley Borate – 49
EPK (kaolin) – 19
Flint (silica) – 32
Chrome oxide – 2

Cobalt Oxide – 1

Bentonite 2%
This glaze has to be applied much thicker

Almost like a thin yogourt. The mug in the illustration was fired to cone 5.
As you get hotter the green becomes more uniform and “greener” much like the area on the edges of the handle
