Thanks for all the information!  I love that article on iron oxide and can't wait to experiment with the glaze they have listed there.  

I haven't had a lot of time to explore this web site yet.  There seems to be a ton of good information.  I could get lost in here.  I will try to put up some photos of my work that are more appropriate than this thumbnail.  It's actually a cone 10 gas glaze.  I'll switch to one that's cone 6.

Hi Sylvia,

I had never heard of synthetic iron before either. It is described here in a pdf by John Britt  Very interesting article and another description here  and I am sure you can find other articles about iron. It really is interesting. And you must have read this article

You don't have any examples of your work. The one that is your photo is interesting but very small. How about uploading some pieces?

Where do you get Synthetic Iron Oxide?  I've never heard of it.
