Test bottles - oxidised glazes

Yesterday I did an oxidised firing in my gas kiln, using some of the same glazes as I used in the last reduction firing but getting totally different results. I was able to obtain some very nice oribe glazes. From copper carbonate I obtained light blue, deep red and copper greens.  Over the next couple of weeks I want to do some salt glazing in reduction and oxidisation, to see if I can get similar colour response but with a salt-glazed textures.
