Glaze (or enamel)

A ceramic glaze is a layer of a glass-like substance which has been fired at high temperature. This coating is also called enamel.

Applied to ceramic ware it forms a protective moisture-proof coating. In addition to this functional aspect, it enables a variety of surface textures, including degrees of gloss and matt, and finished colour.
