This glaze is a member of the Tenmoku and Kaki family of glazes. It is a rich, red semi gloss glaze which has some mottling. The brightest color is achieved over porcelain or white stoneware in oxidation firing. Dark clay bodies or reduction firing tend to make this glaze red-black. Iron Read does not lend itself to some oxides in decoration.
