Cone 6 oxidation (larger image): Glacier Blue provides a translucent, light blue gloss color. You will produce beautiful color variations with Glacier Blue without the glaze running off your ware during firing. Designed to provide a hint of color with one coat, deeper color with two to three coats – but remaining translucent.
Cone 10 reduction (smaller image): Color lightens.
TIP: One coat allows more of the clay body characteristics to appear through the glaze, adding a faint color gloss to the surface. Subsequent coats deepen the blue color but at three coats you will still obtain a translucent fired surface. Four+ coats will produce more opacity and less translucency.
Stoneware classic glazes offer the depth, sophistication and reliability to artists working from mid-range to high-fire temperatures. Many glazes will break over textures, revealing secondary colors and shades. Used alone, stoneware glazes produce beautiful color variations. One coat will allow the clay body to show through the glaze and two to three coats deeper the color. The choice of clay body, thickness of glaze application, firing process and temperature will affect the fired finish.
Chips shown are fired flat on a white clay body fired to cone 6 oxidation and cone 10 reduction. The choice of clay body, the thickness of glaze application, the firing process, and temperature will affect the fired results.
