Glazes to Try

Just a jumble of recipes I want to try. I like storing them here because then I can'r LOSE them, whihc I already lost the tenmoku redipe that I liked from the last firing. Unless it's the one on this list, which it might be; I remember it contained 8% iron. 

Anyway. I got thse from a list Linda Arbuckle published. Hers has approximately 0ne million glazes on it, with notes; but it's hard to read since it's all rtf with no breaks between the recipes. Still, it's a treasure trove. Check it out.
