Ceramic Frits are vitreous compounds that have been melted, and then rapidly cooled.
The compounds are insoluble in water, and when added to glaze, the glaze will be insoluble.
Frits allow even some hazardous materials to become safer components in fired glazes.
Frits also allow glazes to be fired at low temperatures, and encourage a more consistent result.
Frits can be used as a primary or auxiliary flux.
