What materials are used to make a glaze?

Unit 1 Topic 7
Glaze Basics
Glazes are made by mixing raw materials available in the environment
or from commercial suppliers.

The glaze recipe is a list of raw materials which are chosen to supply the fluxes, stabilisers and glass formers necessary to make the glaze.

Raw materials are complex or simple chemical structures of elements which, when heated during the firing, form or release oxides which combine with other oxides to make the glass or glaze.
