Summary

In a glaze the presence of cations that are not in their most thermodynamically stable valence state leads to changes in the microstructure and local stoichiometry of the glaze. In this paper, the effects of a number of typical metallic contaminants, including aluminum, iron, tin, copper, zinc, and carbon, in a typical fast-fire glaze will be discussed. The results are generally consistent with what would be predicted from basic thermodynamic considerations.
