Some of the water used in this process appears colored. I wonder if they
are using soluable metal salts to effect the glaze surface like fuming.
Some have posited that the water is for reduction. Maybe its both the water
reducing the salts so that the result is a metallic luster.
Looks flash but I wonder how stable this surface would be. Would it survive
a dishwasher, hand washing or hot acidic tea served in it?
