Blue Glaze Cone 6

Recommended Posts

Dear friends

 

I am loking a a blue glaze that would give several tinge of colors in firing. Do you have a nice recipe to share? My mother tongue is french so I am sorry if there are mistakes in my message!

 

Thank you very much!

My favorite blue for red/dark brown clay bodies is Bright Sky Blue (Cone 6 Oxidation). On those clay bodies, the colors run from shades of blue to white. The recipe was developed by Ron Roy and John Hesselberth and can be found in their book, Mastering Cone 6 Glazes.

 

Miri , a potter in Puerto Rico, has done several glaze tests of variations of the Mastering Cone 6 Glazes and she has published their recipes on her blog site http://nickandmiri.wordpress.com/

 

You can also Google "Clayart archives" and search for blue glazes. Lots of recipes there.

Louise,

Sorry I missed the ^6 reference. I got mixed up with Eric's link to Eduoard's blog which is for ^9 Reduction glazes, I believe.

 

Here is a nice satin matt base glaze for ^6. The added colorants are for ^6 Reduction.

For a stronger blue , increase the cobalt. There will be lavender tinges because of the Magnesium in the Dolomite.

You could try using a blue mason stain and see what happens.

Hello Louise,

 

If your are oxidation cone 6 firing you can use the floating blue of James Chappell - http://floatingblue.blogspot.com/

 

It is very reliable, very interesting glaze. Right now I am in a hurry, but you may also contact me on judith.st@gmail.com for the receipe in french if you like.

A plus, Judith

Thanks for the shout-out Bruce! I just mixed up 5 more tests based on Mastering cone 6 Glazes (4 blues and 1 green). Have to fire a bisque first before I get to test them out but I'll be sure to post photos here of my results. I'm liking this forum! :-)
