A glaze in cooking is a coating of a glossy, often sweet, sometimes savoury, substance applied to food typically by dipping, dripping, or with a brush. In this case, as it is a vase and not a doughnut, Gunnar Nylund has used hare’s fur glaze, it is a high-iron glaze that is applied in thick layers, which bubble up through one another and generate patterns ranging from metallic crystals to running streaks.
