Summary

Cone 5 is an important break point in glaze formulation. Above cone 5 it is possible to use appreciable amounts of silica in the glaze batch, and providing adequate fluxing is not a problem. But at these higher fires, some raw materials cannot be used, mattes are difficult to formulate and fire, and color stability must be carefully controlled.
