Glaze Recipes

The following glaze recipes have been contributed by some of the potters represented on the Central Clay web site. Although they work for the potters that submitted them, it is highly recommended that you test them thoroughly with your clay body and your firing conditions before committing them to a good pot! The potters that submitted these glaze recipes can not be held accountable for any problems you may have with their recipes! As always, test, test, test!

If you're looking for premixed glazes, The Ceramic Source has a variety of premixed Duncan Glazes.
