Supernova Glaze – Zosma


Our “Supernova Glazes” are crystalline glazes that produce beautiful crystals in normal firing and much larger crystals in controlled firings. They are suitable for mid fire application on flat and vertical surfaces. They are purely for decorative pieces as the glazes tend to craze.



Supernova Glazes need to be applied using 3 – 4 coats to best achieve the crystalline effect.

When applying to vertical surfaces, ensure that a gap of about 3 cm is left to the bottom of the piece as the glazes tend to run a lot. It is a good idea to place pieces on tile to prevent damage to the kiln shelves by glaze dripping.

It is also possible to paint another glaze around the base of the piece to stop the Supernova Glaze from running all the way down. This requires experimentation.


The Supernova Glazes are designed to fire at middle fire temperatures between cone 4 (1,186oC) and cone 8 (1,263oC).

Larger crystals may be achieved in controlled firings where the kiln temperature is allowed to cool in a controlled fashion. Following is a typical controlled firing schedule.


Chrysanthos Supernova Glazes are not food safe therefore are only suitable for decorative purposes only.
