Summary

In order to develop higher-chroma colors using the standard zircon triaxial pigment system in a zircon-opacified glaze, the optics of the system were modeled using the Mie scattering and Kubelka-Munk theories. The importance of considering the optical characteristics of both the pigment and opacifier, as well as their dissolution/reprecipitation behavior, will be discussed The results of this study will be demonstrated in a fritted cone 01 glaze system.
