Katelyn's Cone 10 Reduction Crystalline Glaze

Tile # 65 Recipe: Cone 10 Reduction
50 Frit 3110
25 Zinc
25 Silica        
2 Red iron
2 Cobalt

Glaze was poured and is fairly thick and glossy glass near the bottom but started to bubble with thinner application, so desired effect might change with different application. The top picture was a range of different frits used with the same silica zinc ratio. I found frit 3110 to respond the best with no blistering or pin-holing. Cobalt comes out dark blue at 2% cobalt and crystals formed are a light blue. This was never applied to a larger surface so I would imagine with the larger surface more crystals would form.


  1. Success is a choice not a dream. So, work hard for it and always be open-minded. Visit my site for more information. Have a good day and keep on moving forward for that success.



  2. I heard a rumor recently that I am in the process of verifying. The caller said that the UofM had closed the ceramics department. Can this be true? The clay shop at the U of M has a long history of helping fine artists get started; some relatively famous artists. Anyone care to clarify this rumor for me?

  3. I really enjoyed reading your article. I found this as an informative and interesting post, so i think it is very useful and knowledgeable. I would like to thank you for the effort you have made in writing this article.
