Enamel colours have always been used to decorate pottery wares. Today they come processed but in early years of the Belleek Pottery they, along with most raw materials, were processed at the Pottery.

This particular grindstone was used to crush and mix the raw enamel colours. Enamel colours are made from the oxides of metals.

Each metal's oxide gives a different colour, e.g. browns and blacks from Iron oxide, greens from Copper oxide, and blues from Cobalt oxide.
