Early Earthenware Glazes
These were usually based on lead and tin, which produced an opaque white finish. Early soft-paste porcelain has a colour-less lead glaze, but later soft-paste porcelain had crushed flint or glass added to the glaze.
Lead glazes - Were used until the 19th century when less dangerous materials were found.
Tin glaze - Chips easily but provides a white ground that was perfect for colour decoration.
Salt glaze - Stoneware has an orange peel effect produced by throwing salt into the kiln during firing.
Crackle glaze, cracklure or crazing - Occurs when the ceramic body and the glaze shrink at different rates, as they cool, a crackle glaze is highly desirable on some items - particularly Japanese Satsuma wares.
