Cone 6 Glazes – Trialing Coyote Glazes

Cone 6 Glazes – Trialing Coyote Glazes

In my former life as a potter in Texas, I only had an electric kiln. I found Coyote Glazes just as I was leaving to move to Australia, so only had a few firings with their glazes, but was totally impressed by them.  Since being in Australia and having a gas kiln, I have spent years learning the glazes, processes and techniques to achieve success in that type of kiln.  However, on a recent trip to the USA, I bought and brought back sever 10# bags of Coyote glazes and 6 pint jars of accent glazes from Coyotes.  I don’t want to give up my high-fire reduction gas fired work, but sometimes I long for the dependability and ease of the electric-fired cone 6 glazes.  So far, I’ve had some good luck and some night mares (as usual!).

This is a refire and it was a very dark shino from a woodfiring. I sprayed on Oasis and added Croc Blue and Ice Blue to the edge.

Be sure to check out their website for great information on all their glazes, applications and suggestions for use.

Now back to glazing for high-fire reduction!  Bring on the copper reds!

    Hi there
    I’m new to making pottery. First attempt at firing in an electric kiln didnt come out so well. I would like to refire some pieces because the glaze wasnt thick enough to cover well. Any advice? how many coats to reapply…..firing? Any help would be appreciated.
    Thanks
    Melody
    Ps. Love your pottery.

      Hi, without seeing your pots it is hard to say…but generally a refire can help! If you are dipping, then just do another coat, but if painting it on – 3 coats. What glaze are you using? Good luck and thanks for reading and loving my work!
      All the best,
      Marian

      Hi, thanks for reading my blog and liking my work! I currently am not using Coyote Glazes. I’m now mixing all my own glazes and firing Cone 10. However, I recently made totems which I used Duncan Concepts on. And, Yes, the brightness depends on the number of coats…I used three coats.
      Thanks, hope this is helpful. This is my webpage.
      All the best,
      Marian
