The Way We Work

Decoration and Glaze

Barreiros elaborates an enormous variety of finishes in its pieces: decoration over cover, under cover, especial glazes, with a matt finish or shines. Each of them requires a different particular technique at this specific point of the elaboration process.

In the case of the unmistakable white porcelain with under cover decoration, it is at this moment that the handicrafter decorates with pure metal oxides in order to apply, subsequently, the glaze bath which protects and highlights all the nuances of the piece. The obtaining of a smooth shining glaze or varnish of porcelain after a definitive fire depends, to a great extent, on a very tight and specific formula for the paste of porcelain used.
