    Mastering Cone 6 Glazes

    Potters John Hesselberth and Ron Roy present this invaluable resource for potters working with cone 6 glazes. Compared to the more traditional cone 10 method, the relatively lower firing temperature of cone 6 (2,232°F) results in faster kiln heating and cooling times, and the availability of a more diverse color palette for artists to work with. The different temperature range requires compatible glazes. Beyond that, Mastering Cone 6 Glazes provides a wealth of information for all potters, firing at a variety of temperatures, especially on the subjects of durability and cooling.
