I would sieve the glaze just to be on the safe side. I make my own glazes,
and sieve them always. I have found if my glazes sit for a long time
sometimes a chemical will have occured at some point to make solids that
won't fire out or melt properly. As a result of this experience, I always
sieve again just before beginning glazing activity. . Also, mix or stir
your glazes periodically, even stored ones.
