What Makes Up a Glaze?
Glazes are a form of glass specially designed to adhere to pots and other ceramic surfaces. When molten, this specialized glass is stiffer than glass that is poured or blown is This is critical, because otherwise when brought up to temperature in the kiln, the glaze will spill off the vertical surfaces of the pots.
Colors In Glaze
Glazes come in a wide variety of colors, originating from minerals and inorganic compounds. Iron oxides, cobalt oxide, chromium oxide, copper oxide, and copper carbonate are the most widely used colorants.
The firing process may also affect the color of a glaze. If there is plenty of oxygen in the atmosphere in the kiln it is considered an oxidation fire. If there is very little oxygen in the atmosphere, this is called a reduction shot. The level of oxygen in the kiln will cause a dramatic difference in the color of a glaze. For example, if fired in an oxidation atmosphere, a simple glaze using copper carbonate to color it would be turquoise or bright red if fired in a reduced atmosphere
Glazes vary from absolute clarity to total opaqueness. Most opaque or partly opaque glazes derive their influence from either tiny particles or bubbles of compressed air retained in the glaze. Often white glazes are translucent rather than a true colorant due to opacity.
In an otherwise clear glaze, different minerals can cause opacity, but other characteristics such as surface and crystal development can also be achieved. Many of these minerals are known as glaze modifications.
Blended Glaze Pots
Blended color-glazed pots are meant to catch your attention. The dramatic designs make your eye go directly to the pot, no matter what plants and flowers it contains. These posts are most commonly used in groups of three or more and serve as a focal point.
Solid Outdoor Glazed Pottery
Solid glazed pots are meant to match colors in the landscaping or architecture while not grabbing as much attention as a blended glazed pot would. These pots don’t make the scenery too busy, they are designed to blend in with the surroundings.
