When The temperature of high fire glaze goes high, the glaze will become more melty. Normally, The temperature for high fire glazes is Cone 5 (2167°F, 1186°C. )


Answer by  Alayean (102)

If you are firing cone 8-14 glazes, you will be firing the glazed clay at temperatures between 2305 F (1260 C) and 2530 F (1390 C). If you are using a manufactured glaze, it should tell you the cone rating on the container.

The temperature can be anything depending on how high you set it. If you want to fire a high glaze then read the container for the glaze. If you are firing your own then you should already know so you don't mess up your work. I suggest you take it to a place for someone to do for you.

Ceramic glazes each have a temperature range that they should be fired to. If the glazes are fired at too low a temperature,the glaze will not mature. If the temperature goes too high, the glaze will become too melted and run off the surface of the pottery.
