Glaze Colors

Holy smokes, what a rainbow. Choose from simple single colors to edgy two-tone combinations. All our glazes are formulated in-house – craft style, I suppose you’d call it – so they’re unique to Grey Fox Pottery’s handmade mugs. Whether you need a soft lavender coffee mug for your coffee shop, a strong satin black beer stein for your brewpub, or a fun periwinkle goblet for your renaissance festival, we have a color that’s perfect for you. Our glazes are available on all of our mug styles, and they are lead-free and food safe.

A note about medallions and glazes

Creating handmade pottery is like baking cookies – the ingredients remain the same, but each batch yields its own diversity within. One by one, each mug is hand dipped and filled with glaze until the final bake in the kiln slowly melts and marbles the glaze colors, creating a unique variety among each piece.

Handmade glazed mugs

Our artists turn your logo into a balance of black and white elements that become the topography of the medallion. The black elements of the logo are recessed and filled with glaze while the white elements are raised and remain the natural sand color of the clay. While baking, the heat of the kiln mixes and marbles the glaze colors inside the medallion’s recesses and allows the glaze on the rim to melt down the mug. Because of this melting, filling a medallion that has large recessed (black) areas is challenging and problematic. Artwork with thin, white elements and large black areas is aesthetically pleasing on paper, but it can’t withstand the process as a medallion.

The Bistro mug shown (top) has a medallion filled with black slip, and the entire mug is dipped in gold glaze. The Vanessa mug (bottom) has a medallion filled with blue slip, the entire mug is dipped in pink glaze, and just the rim is dipped in white glaze.
