Bubbles!

Hey everybody, been doing some testing and went through my first gas firing. (click my sig link if you are interested in the firing) I thought it was a disaster but others tell me not so much. Expectations will absolutely RUIN your happiness. Anyways, I have 2 glazes that I really kinda dig.

The first glaze is a leach white which is nice and I'm still doing some tuning on that. Below is an example of the leach 4-3-2-1 glaze that went through the gas firing with too much reduction and made it to cone 9. I put a sprinkling of FE203 Red Iron Oxide and a sprinkling of Rutile as well just to see what each would do.

The second glaze is what I'm curious about. It's Malloy Clear. Its not really clear, its opacity is created by billions of bubbles trapped in the glaze which is actually quite cool. It gives it a warmer color and I'm quite smitten. Being that there are bubbles in this, and they do not affect the surface of the piece would these be in any way compromised in strength / durabiltiy / foodsafenes etc?
