Can I mix bisque and glaze in the same firing?

Mixing bisque and glaze in firing

Do not place greenware and glazed ware in the same load. The gasses emitted by greenware may cause discolouration of the glaze.
If it is necessary to mix glaze and greenware pieces when firing a load, the glazed pieces should be packed in the lower part of the kiln with the greenware above.
