Tone variation is an intrinsic part of the glazing process, and is a distinctive indication of the hard work done by hand on what is an incredibly unique and unpredictable material.
This may present as more intense tones along the edges, and a change of color towards the centre and flatter parts of each piece.
This variation is especially visible in colors made with a shiny crystal finish, which we like to compare to the appearance of mirrored water – it holds an element of depth but reflects the light and its surroundings.
Some colors will have a crystal finish but will not seem as glass-like and will not reflect the light as much as others, but they still have the possibility of changing tone.
Tone variation can also occur amongst the glossy and matte finishes, although this will happen to a lesser scale.
