Glaze results - needs work but there is potential

The kiln cooled and the test cylinders emerged and for a ^6 oxidation firing, the results aren't bad. I learned which glazes worked well together and which were disastrous combinations. The glazes that I made up and used were Pete Pinnell's Tomato, Tom Coleman's Yellow Matte, Satin White w/Nutmeg & Sybil's Black Stain and Hesselberth/Roy's High Calcium Semimatte 2 w/6% rutile. The firing schedule was a slow cool set by Pete Pinnell for the Tomato glaze.
So now it's time to start playing with layering these glazes to achieve depth and movement. I'll be looking like a mad scientist very shortly and will hopefully have some more good results to share.
Are you working on glaze combinations? Have you had results that you'd like to share? We'd love to hear about what you are working on in your studio.
