Accueil » Under-glaze


The decoration is hand-painted upon the raw and unbaked glaze. Pigments (see Oxides) are gently laid upon the unbaked glaze and then fired together with the glaze for about 12 hours at a high temperature, about 1,000° C (or 1,820° F). Colours then merge with the glaze and are thus very resistent to abrasion. This technique is called grand feu in French (high fire).
