Do you glaze pottery before or after firing?

The answer is after and ... "Most pottery is fired twice (or in some cases 3 or more time!). The first firing is called the bisque, then there is a second firing for the glaze. This is the way you probably learned, and the way you probably do it. But it is possible to fire only once. In fact, ancient pottery, such as Chun Pottery, was often only fired once. This is called “Single Firing” or “Once-Fired Ware”."
