Gotta Love The Cone 6 Glazes From Coyote Clay!

Gotta Love The Cone 6 Glazes From Coyote Clay!

When I worked at my studio in Texas, I was limited in space, expertise in mixing glazes, and only firing in an electric kiln.  After attending Steven Hill’s Workshop on spraying glazes, I set about finding a source for ready-mixed Cone 6 glazes.

I found Coyote Clay online and ordered several glazes -WOW!  They worked great!  They were easy to use, mix and had consistent results.  Even better, they looked great sprayed and when layered.

I was getting close to achieving the gas kiln “look” that I was craving!

Here is an example of what can be achieved:

Coyote Clay Glazed Bowl-Black poured in the center, then the whole bowl dipped in Ice Blue, with slip trailing on the rim.

Since moving to Australia, I now have a gas kiln and working with the Cone 6 glazes has not been on my “list of things to do”.  However, after seeing their booth at NCECA 2013, I was no less impressed.

Martin Butt and his wife, Willie, were there and their booth was awesome!  Made me remember why I loved their glazes!

Sorta makes me long for the simplicity of the electric kiln and Cone 6 glazes!  Nahh……
