Ceramic bottles

This is a stoneware paperclay body that i used a slab roller and a texture stamp to make. It has been glazed to cone 6 with the following recipe ,—- Porcelain body clay, dry (low temp porcelain 1250c ) 20% / Silica -20% / Wollastonite – 20% / cal bor. frit 5 % / Borax – 15 %/ added 2% red iron ox. and 1% copper carb.    The glaze sits well on the body with no cracks but i would like less shine, but not a bad glaze. This was cone six with a 20 min soak. Next time i will add a bit of fine rutil to give it a bit of life.
