Low fire and high fire

The buttons above are low fired. They are fired to a cone 4 at 1900 degrees. With low fire you can get all the colors of the rainbow, however they are not as durable as the high fire buttons.

The buttons below are high fired to a cone 10 at 2300 degrees. I like the durability of these but you cannot get the bright colors that low fire glazes have to offer. So my personal choice is the the high fire ones. I know they won't break if they are dropped on concrete. :)

Being offered in my etsy shop now.
