- Salt glaze in pottery is a glaze having the texture of orange peel which is formed on stoneware by throwing common salt into the kiln at the peak temperature. The sodium from the salt combines with silica in the clay to form a glassy coating of sodium silicate.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salt_glaze_pottery ↩
