My new favorite glaze

In all my complaining the last few posts I have completely glossed over the new glaze I have been using with great success, a cone six ash glaze.

Based off Aerni Ash;

Wood Ash - 50
Grestely Borate - 12.5
Neph Syn - 12.5
Silica - 12.5
Whiting 12.5

I am firing in an electric kiln, oxidation.

So far I have used this with;

2% cobalt carb. - awesome. Blue of course.
5% nickle oxide - nice, yellowish.
7% rutile - ugh. 

I will be trying copper carb and about 6% RIO soon. I will also try some stains.
