Een diepe, intense blauwe. Een van de meest dramatische van de Constellation-glazuren, Antares zal sterrenkristallen en bronstinten ontwikkelen als het langzamer wordt afgekoeld.

De Constellations zijn de eerste lijn van glazuren die ontworpen zijn om te schitteren in zowel reguliere als langzaam gekoelde ovens. De dikte, de baktemperatuur en vooral de koelsnelheid kunnen deze glazuren beïnvloeden, waardoor ze nooit twee keer hetzelfde zijn.

A deep, intense blue.  One of the most dramatic of the Constellation glazes, Antares will develop starry crystals and shades of bronze as it is cooled more slowly.

The Constellations are the first line of glazes designed to shine in both regular and slow-cooled firings. Thickness, firing temperature, and especially cooling speed can affect these glazes, ensuring they are never the same twice.

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.
