The exterior of the pieces can be glazed by the provided glazes: 2 glossy (interior/exterior) and 1 matt (exterior only), the interior can be glazed with the glossy glazes or with a studio glaze good for cone 9 / 1280 degrees Celsius. It’s nice to keep parts of the pieces bare to see the effects of wood firing.
