Jungle Gems and Crystalites: The Magic of the Kiln!

Jungle Gems and Crystalites demonstrate the magic of the kiln more effectively than any other glaze. Often referred to as "Art in a Jar”, these beautiful glazes transform in the kiln when small pieces of glass burst into color and create intricate patterns during the firing process. Use alone to add texture, depth and stunning effects, or in glaze combination blending with Stroke & Coats, Foundations, Cobblestones or simply as an accent to your design.

Our Crystal Glazes are easy to use while providing outstanding results. Designed to mature at cone 06/05, the Jungle Gems and Crystalites glazes enable artists to achieve complex glazed surfaces with guaranteed results and minimal effort; one to two coats and you’re done! Crystal Glazes can be fired to higher temperatures so remember to review individual color labels for cone 6 firing results. The crystals in the glaze will melt when fired, which may create a textured surface. As that surface may be difficult to properly clean if in contact with food, we recommend crystal glazes to be used on non-food surface areas. For example, the outside of a mug, outside of a bowl, rim of a plate, decorative pieces, etc.
