Mid-fire glazes fall in between, and are fired at cone 4-6. Mid and high-fire were historically used to achieve more muted, earthy colors. But glazes have continued to improve and now many different glaze characteristics can be achieved at each of the firing temperatures. Moreover, mid-fire glazes, which are fired using stoneware and porcelain clay, are stronger and more durable.
We’ve received many customer concerns about glazes freezing during shipping in cold weather. Luckily, most glazes can be thawed and mixed and still work properly. Please put a comment in your order if you would like us to hold your order until the weather has improved.
