Traditionally potters fired their work either at low temperatures, as for earthenware, or at high temperatures that stoneware requires. However, a growing number of potters, particularly those who use electric kilns, are firing to a middle range of temperatures, of which cone 6 is typical. Using middle-range temperatures saves fuel and expense, reduces wear on electrical elements, and yet allows the potter to achieve features shared by earthenware and stoneware.
In Glazes Cone 6 Michael Bailey surveys this growing trend in middle temperature firing and guides the reader with practical information. He discusses a range of different glazes, including special effects, glaze stains, and underglaze colours, giving recipes and tips to ensure success. The information is illustrated with many colourful glaze tests (all fired in electric kilns) to show the variety and scope of glazes at cone 6.
