This is a flexible glaze that does well in both cooler and hotter spots in the kiln. The matte can form some reflective crystals. I love using this glaze together with Amber Celadon for the liveliness arising from the contrast between glossy and matte, warm and cool. 

Note: Use 4–5% copper carbonate.
