In reduction, these glazes will be enhanced by the reduction process.¬† Impurities and trace metals in the clay and glaze will react with carbon in the kiln atmosphere to create spotting.¬† Oxides react in various and sometimes spectacular ways.¬† Each firing creates a certain unique quality in the ware.¬†¬†
Read the description carefully to determine whether oxidation or reduction is advised.¬†¬†All are lead free and non-toxic, and may be used on dinnerware when fired properly.¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†
Celadon is an ancient, traditional, Asian glaze. It is translucent with a grayish green color and a semi gloss surface. The translucency allows some of the clay body to show through the glaze. Reacts beautifully with most oxides in reduction firing.
