Spectrum’s Emerald is truly a gem of a raku glaze. (feel free to groan now, but consider that it could have been much worse….Kansas, Wizard of Oz, Emerald City….you can see where that might go). Though the glaze is primarily a geen base with flashes of metallic gold, I observed a beautiful iridescence with hints of purple, blue and fuchsia, particularly when reduced in excelsior. A stronger metallic finish was obtained when sawdust was used for reduction, while leaves seemed to influence more of the green tones from the glaze.
