Liner Glazes

Recommended Posts

One benefit would be the liner glaze would match the COE of the exterior glaze -- promoting better/consistent glaze fit. Is it necessary to use a base glaze as the liner, no, but it may mitigate potential fit problems.

Base glazes are just a base  without specific colorants. Liner glazes are those used for lining inside pots and as Bciske says they are made to avoid problems with COE.

I have been using liner glazes since the 60s,  before digital fire or computer programs for glazes. BTW, there wasn't much talk about toxicology back then. Barium was a favorite flux for pottery in those days because of the buttery satin surface.

Norm,

Here is a white Liner base I started using in ^6 reduction in 1980. It came from a handout from NCECA in the 70s.

I used it with a lot of different colorants in my classroom.

It works in reduction too as white.
