Een ietswat lopend, doorschijnend glazuur dat zich in de textuurgebieden verzamelt. Koperblauw is de basiskleur maar kan soms tot transparant overgaan. Wordt rood tijdens een reductiestook.

Een van onze meest gevarieerde series, de Koper- en IJzeren Glazuren zorgen voor een mooie, traditionele uitstraling van keramische producten. Ze hebben elk hun eigen eigenschappen, maar de meeste zijn duurzaam genoeg voor functionele artikelen.

A somewhat runny, translucent glaze that pools in textured areas.  Copper blue can serve as a nice base glaze, or sometimes an alternative to clear.  Fires red in reduction.

One of our most varied series, the Copper and Iron Glazes provide beautiful, traditional looks for ceramic wares.  They each have their own properties, but most are durable enough for functional ware. 

Every kiln and firing is different. It is best to use witness cones in every firing.

Coyote glazes are designed to be fired between witness cone 5 and witness cone 6.

Cone readings are a combintation of time and temperature, and do not correspond directly to any specific temp in degrees. Most digitally controlled kilns have a pre-programmed cone fire setting that will allow you to reach the proper temperature with minimal fussing (we use a cone 5, fast, with 30 minute hold.) For manual (sitter) kilns we recommend using a 6 cone.

Thermocouples and other electronic measuring devices are prone to error and degrade over time. The only way to be certain that your kiln is firing to the right temperature is to use witness cones every time you fire your kiln.
The tip of your self supporting cone 5 should be at least even with the base, and the tip of the cone 6 should not touch the shelf.
