Sweet and meh at the same time

I was opening a new box of B-mix at the studio and I noticed the box was labelled B-mix 5.

I scurried up to one of the resident artist and confirmed the B-mix is really a cone 6 clay. And the follow up question "Does this mean the gas kilns fire at 6, not 10?" "yes" was the answer.

So I will not graduate to cone 10 reduction glazes. However I have a ton of great cone 6 glazes so I am not starting from scratch. I will be able to add some true reduction glazes to my palette.

I extruded about 20 pounds of test tiles. I will start testing the house glazes soon.
