About our Bisque

All our bisque is poured with an Italian Clay body made by Colorobbia and fired to maturity at 1030 degrees, cone 05.

Glazing and Glazes

We recommend and sell HC0004 Hobby Colorobbia Glaze, which is lead free, quick drying and fires to a fabulous finish.

Our bisque does not achieve a good result with Dazzle Dip or Duncan Pure Brilliance and we recommend that you don't use these glazes with our bisque.

Our bisque fires well with Colorobbia glazed at cone 06, and better at cone 07 (saving you in firing costs)

Some Mayco elements glazes or jungle gems don't work well, as there is poor chemistry with the body, so please test any speciality glazes on a small piece prior to any large projects or workshop pieces.
