Opulence Glaze

Available in 5 distinctive finishes in both brushing and dipping, Opulence Glaze stays in the forefront of the commercial glaze industry.

Opulence Glaze was developed by Dr. Richard Eppler, the foremost glaze chemist in the world, and Tom Turnbull.

Manufactured by Mid-South Ceramic Supply Company, sales started in 1986 with the goal to give potters access to quality glaze results with the brillance and clarity to match any in the ceramic industry. A potter did not need to be a chemist, one only needed to add water.

Since this time many commercial glazes have joined the market, yet Opulence still stands out as the best dipping glaze available. Another advantage that was foremost in development, Opulence Glaze can be blended and/or used as a base glaze so to give each potter their own individual, signature glazes. Also, there is no question about the food safety of the glazes.

“I love Opulence Glaze. I’ve been using your Reduction-Look Glazes since 2010 and LOVE them. They are hands down the best glazes on the market. They really make my work pop. You guys make the best glazes around, better in my opinion than Amaco.”

- Vanessa DeVore, Opulence customer
