Disclaimer and Health Warning

Glazy takes no responsibility for the recipes in this database. You should be aware of the dangers of ceramics materials when mixing, applying, and firing glazes.

Recipes in this database contain dangerous chemicals that can injure or even kill you through short-term and long-term exposure when ingested, inhaled, or absorbed through the skin. Even after firing, glazes can leach toxic chemicals into food and drink. Ceramicists making functional ware should be especially vigilant in ensuring their glazes are food-safe.

Ceramic recipes "do not travel well" and are very sensitive to differences in materials, preparation (seiving and ball milling), application, firing, and cooling. Even for well-known and well-tested glazes, your results may be significantly different from others. Therefore, knowledge of how to test and adjust glazes is extremely important.
