Glaze on Bisque

Recommended Posts

I noticed years ago that there are two layers of glaze on a bisqued pot, dipped specifically. There is the glaze and if that layer is chipped off there is a faint layer of residue. Then there is the bisqued substrate. I just got to thinking today about that and wondered if anyone here knows what that residual layer is, and/or is called?

You mean if you chip off the glaze and there's that little bit of powder still clinging to the pot? I didn't know it had a name. It's just more glaze, I guess.

 

 

Thanks Neil. So much happens in that zone during the melt that I got to thinking that it could be possible that how it is formed effects how the clay/glaze interface forms, hence the possibility of a name. You are probably right, it is likely just a residual glaze powder.

 

But ya know, it never hurts to ask.
