•The secret to cool bodies and glazes is a lot of testing.
•The secret to know what to test is material and chemistry knowledge.
•The secret to learning from testing is documentation.
•The place to test, do the chemistry and document is an account at https://insight-live.com

These attempt to show graphically, on an x-y coordinate system, the fired results of a range of oxide mixtures. These graphs are generally used to help isolate, explain and predict how to achieve a specific result. For example, a graph may display results for a constant amount of flux with varying a...
