Welcome to dickblick
This is a beautiful group of bright and pastel colors for creating stoneware pieces that are as colorful as earthenware.
These opaque glazes can be applied over Amaco 65M, 48M, 27M, 77M, and 58M clays. Their firing range is cone 5-6 (2205°F–2269°F, 1207°C–1243°C). They can be bisque-fired to cone 04 (1971°F, 1077°C) and glaze-fired to maturing temperature at cone 5 (2205°F, 1207°C). The surface appearance will vary depending on the clay body.
These glazes are great when used with contrasting colors, next to, or on top of one another. They can also be used over Amaco Sahara High Fire Glazes or Amaco Potter's Choice Glazes. The glazes are ideal for producing colorful utilitarian ware. Pint jars.

Comments about Amaco Celebration Lead-Free High Fire Glazes:
Ordered the Celebration pink because it's so hard to find good pinks that don't turn brown at high fire. I've tried it on test tiles of 6 different clays, including a grogged sculptural and a mid-range porcelain (attached pics of some). And the color results have been consistent and nice at ^5-^6. But texturally speaking it doesn't appear to like grog. I experimented with adding Amaco HF-9 clear on top just for fun, with a muddy result, but seemed to resolve cracking on the grog clay. However I wish I could find an underglaze that stays pink with clear. But I did try layering speckles of black underglaze (not pictured) on top which surprisingly didn't bubble and looked nice. Great product!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I use high fire glazes. I do ceramic sculpture from a Christmas Tree, Armoire, Vases and murals I don't use so much color I use oxides with a touch of glaze.
The glaze is terrific !

I use this product on speckled buff wet clay. It is so beautiful on my piece. It saves me the step of an underglaze; I can just go to the high fire right away. The color is true to my request of Rubber Duckie Yellow!

I love all the PC Amaco glazes for all the effects and earthy colors, but the Celebration glazes are the alternative for the fun opaque colors I like to use on the ceramic works I make for kids. I also teach ceramics and whenever there are kids in the mix, they want the bright colors. These glazes are predictable and stable. It's a plus they are mixable when a certain color in the palette is desired. Also, using detail brushes, one can paint lines, features atop another glaze and those details always come out; they don't get lost or melted into the glaze underneath. I have almost all the colors. If you want a true opaque red, slightly glossy, this is the one to have on your glaze shelves.

Good overall coverage
By A clay builder
from Los Angeles, CA
This glaze series is lovely. The colors are vivid. When you may need to hide an unsuitable clay surface this glaze is perfect for it. The glaze coverage is very good. The glaze surface is strong and durable. As always it's a good idea to test all new glazes. Use the recommended number of coats. Be sure to apply it to a slow, vented, cone 04 bisque. Glaze fire according to label directions.
