One of the Stoneware classic glazes, which offer 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, these glazes produce beautiful color variations. One coat will allow the clay body to show through the glaze. Two to three coats will deepen the color. The choice of clay body, thickness of glaze application, firing process and temperature will affect the fired finish.
Cone 5/6 to 10.
General Appearance of Copper Ore
Cone 6: A highly mobile, reddish brown metallic glaze. A dark bronze field breaks with areas of darker coloring and flashes of brighter red metallic. The movement within this glaze produces striking visual textures.
Cone 10: Finish flattens. Color turns to red/brown. Increased movement.
- This glaze WILL move. Take care when using on vertical pieces – reduce glaze thickness towards the bottom third to minimize run-off.
- Always test prior to use.
