Spiderwort is a luminous shiny glaze which can display shades of red, plum, blue, green, and teal. The glaze is variable based on both thickness, and temperature. The glaze tends to be blue and red when thick or fired cool, or green and teal when thin or fired hot. The glaze will become matte and a mix of plum and teal when cooled slowly. This glaze is very runny when over-fired or over-applied. ♪Spiderwort, Spiderwort, does whatever a spiderwort does ♪
Directions for use
Shake well before use. Apply three flowing coats to ware that has been bisque fired to △05/06. Allow glaze to dry between coats. This glaze is recommended for light-colored clay bodies. Glaze fire to △5/6. Allow at least ¼” of bare clay at the bottom of the ware to account for running. It is highly recommended that you run a vertical test tile before applying to your ware. Differences in application and firing can make this glaze more or less runny, possibly damaging kiln furniture or artwork.
This glaze is lead and cadmium free and is food safe when applied and fired in accordance with directions. Dinnerware producers must test their ware as differences in application and firing can produce different results.
