my interpretation of that is that the underglaze makes such a tight
barrier on the surface that water can't pass through it without popping
off the surface of the clay. Similar to the way terra sigillata can
behave. Maybe you really do have to pre-bisque to use these underglazes.
Or bisque really slowly and make sure the pots are really dry before
they go in.
> The bit that pops off actually takes some of the underlying clay with it. That is why the pot can be ruined. If it were just the UG coming off, I could put some more on to fix it. The UG around the pop is well-adhered.
