Why? c 6 matures at 2232 F. c.02 matures at 2048. C.04 matures at =
1940 F. So there at 184 degrees between c.6 and c.02, and only 108 =
degrees between 04 and 02.
Why do you want to lower c. 6 glazes to 02 instead of using an 04 glaze =
and modifying it?
Here is an 04 transparent with (coincidence) a c 6 glaze using same =
KAREN'S O4 TRANSPARENT
Frit 3134 55.50
Frit 3134 52.4
For white add 10 tin ox.
The only real difference here is .2099 Al2O3 and 1.2143 more SiO2.
Here is a c.03 glaze from CM reprinted in "Glazes: Materials, Recipes, =
and Techniques. The glaze from Linda Arbuckle. =20
Frit 3124 65.53
Kona F4 Feldspar 17.23
Nepheline Syenite 6.23
Avery or EPK 10.81
Add 4.99% tin, 9.99% Zircopax, 1.99 % Bentonite. for a majolica style =
Ok. Please tell me: What is the perceived advantage of down rather =
Be of good courage

I don't think there is an "advantage." Maybe this came out of
the fact that ClayArt has been focused on cone 6 glazes for the last

Lee is right... The only reason I asked the question that way is
because most recipes and tests I see here are for cone 6 and up.
Also I'm not only interested in cone 02 glazes but the whole cone 02
to Cone 3 (not cone 03)range. So cone 6 glazes shouldn't be all that
far from the other end of the range I'm starting to investigate...
And I say starting 'cause I know almost next to nothing about
Why the range you may ask... Is because the clay I used is listed as
a Cone 06 - cone 4 and have been told that it doesn't really handle
cone 4 all that well...
If somebody knows of a link where I can read about the principles
that are at work when trying to bring cone 6 glazes to the soft
stoneware range... I'd be most greatful
