You who purchase pottery probably already know there's a stage in the making of it called bisque ware. It is ready to be glazed, and somewhat more sturdy than greenware when it had been dry but can crumble at a touch. This stage is able to be painted, dipped, sprayed or decorated in some way or another with a glaze. A glaze is usually a chemical formula that is fluid with water including clays and colorants which will melt in the next firing (which is much hotter) and form a glassy surface which makes it food safe. The actual clay body also will vitrify, which means it is almost as hard as a rock, and is brittle and hard enough to eat on, or cook in.
These are the shapes waiting for an inspiration before being glazed.
I'll let you know what happens to them whenever I get them glazed!
