Mystery glaze?

In the previous post, the second photo, taken at the 2015 Alfred workshop, includes several pots of mine: a tall jar, a platter and three bowls. Those bowls are also pictured immediately below:

The bowls’ liner glaze is a “teadust” glaze, and if you squint really hard, you can detect subtle hints of green “dust” amidst the otherwise almost black background. A glaze list provided to workshop participants included a “temoku teadust,” which I figured had to be the bowl liner. So, I mixed a batch, glazed several mugs with it, and included them in a late-May glaze-firing in Jennifer Dinklemeyer’s kiln, in Alexandria. I expected, of course, a subtle temoku teadust. Instead: voila!

I’ll have to experiment to figure out how to get the effects — subtle or dramatic — I want with this glaze, but needless to say, I’m going to be mixing, applying and firing a lot of it.
