変形する


Explanation:
When you use the verb "reduce" in ceramics, it usually has something to do with "changing the shape."

In this case, they are obviously using silicon polisher on ceramics; therefore "変形する" would be well fit in the context.

Hope this helps!

削減 すること(SAKUGEN SURUKOTO)


Explanation:
磨き職人には、陶磁器類を削減することや滑らかにすることで、特別な利点があります。
In this case, I believe 削減すること (or even simply 削ること) is a more accurate rendering of the word.
