I would like to glaze fire to 05 some portions of bisque fired work and then smoke fire them to get all the non-glazed parts black. How will the glazed parts respond to the smoke firing process? I'll experiment, of course, but if anyone has experience with smoke firing something that has glaze on it, I'd love to hear.

I have done it ... You risk some breakage just as you would any re firing but mine mostly came out fine.
I have even fired glazes to cone 6 then raku fired after.
