The important point is to be sure your glaze is at the optimum density and viscosity for your dip.  Dip the bowl and move it about in the glaze and shake it, to dislodge the glaze accumulation in the holes.   We John and Ron’s transparent, with a density of 144-145 weight per 100grams, with a dip time of 3/1000.

> Hi,  Does anyone have any suggestions for how to glaze a filigree bowl, i.e. one with lots of holes in it. Whether I pour, dip or brush, there seem to be lots of spots where the glaze didn’t completely cover.  Would it help to dip the bisqued bowl in water briefly before glazing? It takes so much more time to check each little nook and cranny and full in the unglazed spots with a little brush.  It’s especially hard when the clay and glaze are both white. Can this be helped or is it just the nature of the beast?
