The glaze technique on this parrot is eosin, which takes its name from Eos, the Greek goddess of dawn.
This parrot's distinctive metallic sheen is achieved through a technique known as luster glazing, in which ground metals, typically silver, gold, or platinum, are incorporated into the glazing process. The parrot is decorated with green-gold luster, while the base is decorated with blue-purple-gold luster.
