Georgies' Dry Glazes

 

We do not sell our glazes as dry powders.

There are three main avenues of exposure to hazardous or toxic materials: absorption through the skin, inhalation by breathing dust, and ingestion by eating or drinking them. Of these three, inhalation is the fastest, easiest and most common method of exposure.

Most glaze materials come in the form of very finely ground powders that clay artists weigh, blend, sort and mix with water. Working with these materials can result in high rates of dust exposure. Dust from dry glazes will contain free silica crystals that can be harmful to the lungs with repeated exposure. Dry glaze dust may also contain potentially toxic metallic oxides (depending on the formula of the product and the manufacturer.)

At Georgies we recommend that everyone working with dry glaze materials use adequate respiratory protection. We require it for our employees working with these materials. Due to the potential health risks, as a socially conscious and environmentally responsible company we made a strategic decision years ago not to offer our glazes in dry forms.

For more information on materials safety and studio hygiene practices,
please see our Safety pages.
