Oxidation   arrow



oxidation_collectionoxidation_bowlAlthough not as exciting as reduction, oxidation has its areas of magic. I favor alkaline glazes with things like lithium, petalite, barium etc for oxidation.



I have:

  • A white glaze
  • A green glaze which I usually use over oxide decoration
  • A blue glaze
  • A clear glaze which is used either on cobalt decoration or over cobalt and scraffito
  • A clear glaze in conjunction with another glaze
  • My “barium blue” glaze is a strong turquoise which I never put onto eating surfaces
  • Glass or “cullet” is great for playing with although it runs off vertical surfaces.
  • My only real success with glass has been “amstel bottle tiles” these come in various sizes and some with relief designs
