Oxides

Natural metalic oxides used in glazing as colour pigments. The colours appear once the glaze is fired. The 5 main oxides are: – iron: brown and ochres – copper: green – cobalt: blue (the most used colour in azulejo and Delftware) – manganese: violet brown (often combined with blue) – antimony: yellow.
