Reference —  Reduction (reducing firing, reduction atmosphere)
A firing in which insufficient air is supplied to the kiln for complete combustion. Under these conditions, the carbon monoxide in the kiln combines with the oxygen in the oxides of the clay body and glaze, causing the oxides to change color. Commonly associated with high-fire stoneware, porcelain, raku, and lusters.
