Earthenware colour glaze tests

These are some pots I have glazed with some new colour tests, ready to Raku fire with horsehair. The little lidded pots are also a new experiment. Unfortunately it's howling with rain and the weather forecast is pretty dismal for the next few days so I don't know when I'm going to be able to finish them.
These are the colours I tested using an earthenware  gloss base glaze

Lilac 4/2/1%

Turquiose 4/2/1%

Buttercup 4/2/1%

Green 4/2/1%
These colours are a blend of all the above colours at 1%
They don't show up very well in the photos but there are some really nice colours as a result of this test
