In a reduction reaction (which always occurs simultaneously with an oxidation reaction) the reducing agent is the chemical or substance which (1) combines with oxygen or (2) loses electrons to the reaction See Oxidation

A reducing atmosphere is one in which the environment of the furnace is low in oxygen as in a smoky fire In this state, oxygen is pulled out of the medium of the glass and any oxides in the mix undergo a chemical transformation through the process of oxidation [i e : Using cuprous oxide in a reducing atmosphere will cause isolation of the copper and result in a red coloration] One effect of the reduction process is coloration, but also opalescence, and metallic striation in the glass, the effects dependant on the mineral/ chemical constituents of the glass
