04 Glaze/crystal Glaze Fired To Cone 5

Recommended Posts

I have a lot of 04 glazes & crystal glazes but I have cone 5 stoneware. I am making ceramic windchimes. What would happen if I tried missmatching glazes? I am doing a test fire but would like some input. I will post my results, wish me luck!

You might try mixing a little of your clay in slip form in with the glazes to prevent them from running all over the place. Definitely test. Maybe try a teaspoon or two as a first step.

Hi Momeema,

I think that the fact that the stoneware matures at a temperature different from the glazes you plan to use will not be a problem, you could bisque it at a higher temperature even cone 4 and then glaze it, and fire it at the cone the glaze requires.

good luck
