Sapphire Sprig Bead

This is an ironstone clay wrapped with three porcelain sprigs. I covered it with Sapphire Green, a newly discontinued glaze from Mayco and fired to cone 1. 

Mayco has is pretty much discontinued all of its gloss series, in favor of the Foundation series.

According to the Mayco website, the Foundation series has some exciting colors to choose from.  They sport normal, yet bland, names like "blue" "red", "green" and the ever popular "purple".

Perhaps that is why I strolled over to the Duncan side of the aisle and ended up buying 6 new colors to play with?
