OTHER INFORMATION

Some colours - usually reds, oranges, violets etc - will strike (complete the chemical reaction from a colourless form to the colour) upon reheating the glass - sometimes this will happen in the annealing kiln but usually in the glory hole - but over working will result in browns or straw colours etc.

Any striking colours are identified in its description.

Striking Colours

A clean, possibly hissing, highly oxidising flame can prevent dark colours - blacks and cobalt blues and rubies - from becoming dull, grey or muddy or brown. If you do not want gold and silver colours reducing you may need an overly oxidised flame to prevent a dull surface

Highly Oxidising Flame

Some colours - typically those named “silver”, “gold”, “iris” - if worked using a long lazy flame searching out oxygen, will have the metals in the surface reduced to create a metallic surface. I.e this can enable the colour to be seen on the outside of the piece and the metal on the inside etc.

Reducing Flame

Most of the colours do contain lead but not all of them - particularly the opaque reds, yellows, oranges and browns which contain selenium. Some of the lead bearing colours can be ordered without the lead. The individual colour details will have this information

Lead / Selenium

All prices are in GBP - often per kg - and need delivery and VAT to be added. For some items there are pictures or more information if you press on the link. You can order by email, phone, fax but but you cannot pay online - please see ORDERING
