A Lesson on Striking and an Apology to Bullseye

Striking is a process where the colour or transparency of a glass will change (mature?) upon kiln firing. Sometimes desirable, occasionally not. I suppose so long as you are aware, it's then a decision as to whether the colour change is a desirable one.
The latest striker colour we now have is Uroboros' stunning 60-103F- a gold-bearing colour that unfired looks like the piece in Figimodo's hand on the left, and fires to a stunning deep and rich Gold-Pink as seen on the right.
Our sincere apology to Bullseye who used to have the nicest Golp-Pinks in their 1311 and 1322, but sadly no longer...
