Inspired by aspects of nature, Elements™ produce lush, organic, and earthy hues. This high performance art glaze gives the artist a wide variety of options in one product as application, firing temperature and shape will influence the outcome. Elements ™ were designed to simulate the aesthetic, movement and interest of mid-range and high fire glazes in a cone 06/05 oxidation kiln firing.

General Use:
Elements™ are designed to mature at cone 06/05. Apply 2-3 coats to shelf cone 04 bisque, allow to dry between coats. As movement and flowing are characteristics of these glazes, taper off toward the bottom of the ware to prevent glazes running off the piece onto kiln shelves. Elements™ can be fired at higher temperatures but will change in appearance. We recommend testing prior to use.

Helpful Hints:

  • Uneven glaze application can affect the look of the glaze. We recommend application in one direction.
  • Allow ample room for air circulation in the kiln during the firing process as heat work and adequate oxygen can influence the glaze appearance. Many of the Elements™ produce interesting effects at cone 6 but will change color. We recommend testing to determine color, surface characteristics and movement prior to use.

Application Recommendations:
The following application recommendations are based upon the original product development intent and use for the product. Shake for 5-6 seconds before use. Dispense glaze onto a palette (tile, plate, etc.) and apply with a soft brush or decorating accessory of choice (sponge, stamp, etc.). Dipping your brush directly into the jar could contaminate the jar's contents, especially if you are using other glazes. Apply 3-4 coats to your piece. Elements™ glazes were designed to mature at a shelf cone 06 (999° C or 1830º F). When applying them over a large surface area we recommend a broad, soft brush, such as a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan Brush or CB-618 #8. Moisten the brush with water first. Try to get the brush fully saturated (loaded) and apply each coat in the same direction. When the wet look has gone from the first coat, you may apply the next coat of glaze. Make sure the glaze has dried thoroughly prior to firing. A medium ramp/firing rate is recommended (250°F per hour) at shelf cone 06.

  • An uneven glaze application, the piece’s shape and surface texture can affect the fired finish.
  • Amount of detail on the ware can also affect the fired finish
  • Allow the pieces ample room in the kiln for air circulation during firing. A heavily loaded kiln will affect the color and the float within the colors as will the firing at temperature cone 06 versus cone 05.
  • Some Elements™ may produce pleasing effects when fired to cone 6; all will change color: Click here to view Mid-Range Firing Guide.
