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 manufactures many different Cone 6 glazes, as well as a Low-Fire line of glazes. Many of the Pro Series Cone 6 Glazes were developed to emulate the rustic and unique surface effects that result from gas kilns fired in reduction, or atmospheric kilns like wood, soda, or salt kiln. These glazes allow artists without access to large or specialty kilns to create atmospheric-like effects while firing in their electric kiln. Each Pro Series Glaze is great on its own, but layering these glazes adds a infinite possibility of effects and outcomes.
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 ASTM D-4236 standards.
The Ceramic Shop’s glazes have been used in schools, community centers and private studios with success for many years.
