Cone5-6_NewW1From the beginning
Cone 5–6 begins with a Jonathan Kaplan’s overview of what you need to get started with creating your own glazes and how to go about glaze testing. In addition, Annie Chrietzberg shows you how to successfully prepare and glaze pots to avoid common application mistakes. Two artists, Yoko Sekino-Bove and Lou Roess, describe their methods for expanding your glaze palette. Yoko takes five base glazes and adds different oxides, carbonates and opacifiers, which she displays with more than 200 test tiles. Lou’s expansion technique is to take three glazes and show how many variations you can get with overlaps.

 

Cone5-6_W2Understanding materials
When it comes to mixing glazes, knowledge of a few key ingredients makes all the difference in the world. Experts Dave Finkelnburg, Matt Katz, Mark Chatterly, John Britt, David Pier and Deanna Ranlett test a variety of key ceramic materials and reveal the results. In addition, they discuss the roles and special effects that fluxes, lithium, feldspar, boron, silicon carbide, iron oxide, chrome oxide, ceramic stains, frits, suspenders and bonders lend to the glaze mix. Written and illustrated in an easy-to-follow format, you’ll gain a new understanding of materials that will change how you test and use glazes from now on.

Cone5-6_W3Glaze types
Do you want a particular look or feel to a glaze? Mid-range glazes that fire to cone 5 and 6 provide a wide range of choices and you’ll find a great selection in Cone 5–6 Glazes. You can choose from celadons and snowflake crackles or maybe you’d like to try some crystalline glazes. If you like the wood-fire look, Richard Busch mimics the look with a couple of layered glazes, plus Harry Spring uses wood ash on his glazes for a stunning high-fire wood effect. And no mid-range glaze book would be complete without the variegation of satiny Bristol glazes or some durable liner glazes.

 

Cone5-6_W4Many artistic choices
Seeing recipes being used helps you better understand your target results. In Cone 5–6 Glazes, you’ll find more than 15 artists and their recipes, many with tips on application, firing, and ideas for variations. With scores of recipes, you may want to try a little of everything or focus on a particular type—slips, engobes, glazes, oxidation, reduction, stains, and even how to adjust glazes from high-fire to mid-range.
