Glaze Color - Pink
Alkaline glazes with barium and small amounts of Mn can produce pink.
Glaze Color - Tenmoku
Reduction tenmoku black-rust glazes with 8-10% iron work well in high potash glazes.
Glaze Color - Blue
0.5-1.0% iron in potassium reduction glazes may give delicate blue to blue green.
Glaze Color - Copper Red
Copper red reduction glazes are best in formulations with high alkali. The presence of boron can give a more pleasant red.
Glaze Color - Copper Blue
Oxidation copper blues work best in high alkaline, low alumina glazes. Increasing copper to 4-6% will move color toward turquoise.
Glaze Color - Cobalt Blue
Cobalt blues can be very intense in alkali glazes (up to 2% cobalt).
Glaze Color - Violet
Alkaline dominant glazes will produce violet, purple, burgundy, red blue using manganese dioxide to 2%.

Alkalies are the strong base fluxing oxides of Na2O and K2O. Feldspars are by far the most common alkali sourcing materials, thus the term 'alkali feldspars'. However frits are also an excellent source and sometimes the only alternative to meet the chemistry requirements (e.g. low alumina and high N...
An indispensable material in the ceramic industry. Most ceramic bodies employ feldspar as a flux to vitrify them at a lower temperature (the feldspar creates a glaze that glues the more refractory par...
Most common feldspars contain both sodium and potassium. The term K-Feldspar designates one where the K2O/Na2O balance heavily favors K2O.
On the theoretical glaze chemistry level, a flux is an oxide that lowers the melting or softening temperature of a mix of materials. Fluxes are interactors (they often melt poorly on their own but react strongly with high melting materials where Al2O3/SiO2 predominate). There are less than ten commo...
An oxide is a combination of oxygen and another element. There are only about ten common oxides that we need to learn about (most glazes have half that number). CaO (a flux), SiO2 (a glass former) and Al2O3 (an intermediate) are examples of oxides. CaO (calcium oxide or calcia), for example, is cont...
