What is bisque firing?
Bisque firing is the first firing.  Generally to about 1600 degrees F.
After bisque clay products will no longer breakdown in water.  This process prepares the clay for glaze and stain application. The clay is porous and absorbs water in the glaze and stain causing the glaze and stain to cling to the clay.
