Fired using a unique heavy reduction method, the atmosphere in the kiln transforms the glaze, to produce a mixed matt/satin finish, during the course of firing. Further enhanced by the bare clay on the edge which darkens during the firing process, this compliments the glaze and overall presentation, particularly on irregular shapes.
As the name suggest Vibrant Orange is an explosion of bright, vivid orange. This flamboyant glaze is just one of a number of bright colours we produce that catch the eye and particularly comes into its own when paired with white. Perfect on its own or used alongside other bright colours.
