This is a beautiful transparent glossy Jade green glaze. Plan for a bit of vertical movement with this glaze, especially if applied thick. Prone to pin-holing is not soaked at the top of firing.
It works very well over a black slip design.

Oooo.... cool. I'll have to try it. Have you put it on your speckly clay body yet?

Nope, but now that you mention it I'll run out and glaze up a bowl with it for a test.

I made up a test batch of Oribe Green and our community clay studio loves it! We're going to have a big batch made up soon! Wish I could post a picture of my casserole I tested it on that came out just beautiful in Oribe green.

Beautiful glaze. Food safe, but not dishwasher safe. It wears of of the edges after repeated washings, so just keep that in mind when using it.
