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, 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 cone 10.
General Appearance of Speckled Plum
Cone 6: With 1 to 2 light coats, a reddish brown gloss finish. With heavier applications (3-4 coats), the glaze evolves to deliver floating maroon-mauve tones. Heavier applications may also yield bands of reddish-mauve specks when used with certain clay bodies.
This glaze will not run off your ware during a cone 6 oxidation firing despite how it moves!
Cone 10: Color darkens.
- Thinner applications will produce darker browns and reds; heavier applications will begin to show an opaque, maroon-mauve float.
- Always test prior to use.
