This glaze is Lloyd's version of a chün or jun glaze, a recipe that originated in the Song Dynasty in China (960 – 1279). He's developed and adapted it so that it works in his kiln and according to his firing pattern. The normal blue ceramic colourant – cobalt – is entirely absent. Instead, the blue is caused by light refracting off bubbles in the body of the glaze. The presence of iron slip painted onto the body of the pot determines the degree of opalescence, while glaze thickness also produces different effects. Lloyd often adds further individuality through the use of wax-resist, brushwork and finger marks.
