The luster glaze technique in ceramics – Experimental workshop
This technique was developed in Persia and the Arab countries and has further evolved in Spain and Italy during the middle age. Luster glaze is achieving various metallic reflections in the ceramic glazes, which are succeeded through an intense oxygen reduction during the cooling of the kiln.
