In the early part of the 14th century a new technique of decorating glass was developed. This consisted of painting a compound of silver on the back of the glass which, after firing in a kiln, turns yellow. Depending on the concentration of the silver compound, the resulting colour ranges from lemon-yellow to a burnt-orange. This technique remained popular well after the 16th century.
Glass coloured all the way through is known as 'pot-metal'. Clear glass is coloured by the addition of metallic oxides which when fired give a range of colours such as blue, red, green and a purple-brown.
