GLAZE - Stoneware.

ca: ESMALT - Gres.

es: ESMALTE - Gres.

Stoneware glazes are fired between 1200º C-1300º C and are usually slightly shiny and can produce some superb colors. If fired twice, some colors become completely matte and can change their color. If there are two or more colors in a design, care should be taken to keep them separate, as they will run into each other if they are touching while being fired.
