AMACO A-28 Peacock £14.95
Peacock is an active, speckled glaze that is reminiscent of toasty reduction high fire glazes with beautiful effects that can be achieved at low temperatures. Where the glaze is thicker, it develops soft green speckles over a darker brown surface where thinner. This glaze is formulated to allow the clay body to show through where there is texture and looks dramatically different on red ware and white ware.
Tableware producers must test all finished ware to establish dinnerware status, due to possible variations in firing temperature and contamination.

I run pottery classes and everyone really likes this glaze. It comes out interesting pretty much whatever you do - as long as you put on a few coats. If you don't stir it enough it can come out just a dark reddish/brown with a few streaks of green. The example photo doesn't show how green it is (although that might be my monitor). It is recommended for use on terracotta, but, it looks great on other paler clays.

I fired to 1040, it didn't run. It was easy to apply and went on smoothly. It looked good on buff coloured clay as well as terracotta. It does imitate stoneware quite well and is food safe. Good for classes, which is what I bought it for.
It recommends firing the biscuit firing to 1040 (ish) I didn't though. I imagine that's to do with glaze fit and shrinkage so I guess something might become apparent about that.
