Re: [teacherartexchange] kid safe/food safe glazes

Duncan, Mayco and our local company, Sherry's Westrn, all make non-toxic glazes (meaning no lead). Look for the "nontoxic" label on the jar. It's the only kind of glaze I use now, and you can even get bright reds and oranges these days.

&gt;Greetings Leah,
&gt;Amaco makes a number of food safe/kid safe glazes. Check your art
&gt;supply catalogs. All catalogs have them clearly marked.
&gt;Here is some information about their glazes:
&gt;Here is a complete 47 page pdf file:
&gt;You can order a free copy:
&gt;Some of the LG series are not food safe. All of the F series are safe for food.
&gt;I have had good luck with all F series glazes.

&gt;&gt; Hi all -
&gt;&gt; I am a serious novice when it comes to glazes - I know only this - the
&gt;&gt; glazes I used at the adult pottery classes I've taken were toxic and would
&gt;&gt; never be allowed in school.
&gt;&gt; I just got a potters wheel -and we are going to do a fund raiser in the
&gt;&gt; spring - sort of an "empty bowl" kind of thing - but I want the kids to
&gt;&gt; make bowls they can glaze and that are food safe...
