The Ceramic Shop’s Glazes
We take pride in the careful attention and creativity that has gone into formulating each individual glaze recipe. Our expert glaze technicians have tested, tweaked and perfected our glazes continually over the years to account for the inevitable changes that occur in the chemical compositions of mined materials. As a result, The Ceramic Shop glazes produce brilliant colors and unique effects with consistency.
The Ceramic Shop currently manufactures two Cone 6 glazes lines, as well as a Low-Fire series. The Pro Series Cone 6 Glazes were developed to emulate the rustic and unique surface effects that result from gas firing techniques. These glazes allow individuals without access to gas kilns to create atmospheric-like effects while performing cone 6 firings in electric kilns. The Pro Series Glazes are available in thirty-two colors and are suitable for layering. The Casual Tints Cone 6 Series is a line of translucent celadon glazes that can be thought of as subtle celadons. This series was designed to allow for actual glaze mixing through layering, allowing one to achieve virtually endless variations of shade, hue, tint and value. The Casual Tints are available in sixteen colors, including four gray tones, which can be layered with any of the other colors to darken or deepen the glaze. Having the ability to mix glazes in this way allows one to dial in on very subtle differences and to achieve the exact qualities of colors desired.
The 1Fire Series is a line of low-fire, cone 06 glazes. These semi-translucent glazes are available in fifteen bright, bold colors. They are fairly stable glazes, but do have a bit of a run to them. 1Fire Glazes produce consistent results and are ideal for use in schools.
The Ceramic Shop’s Glazes are available in wet and dry formats and are suitable for dipping, spraying and brushing, although we recommend adding brushing medium in some cases. Our glazes are lead-free, non-toxic and conform to ASTDM 4236 standards.
The Ceramic Shop’s glazes have been used in schools, community centers and private studios with success for over ten years.
