A cadmium/selenium glass. Can react with lead-bearing glasses or overglazes. Possible reactions with 1311, 1215.
Much colour variation typical upon firing. If specific colour is important, always test before beginning project. Use glasses from same dates. Do not assume that sheets of the same colour when cold will fire identically.

This style is not suitable for kilncasting because it can opalise and/or become incompatible when held at high temperatures for an extended period.
