Reference —  Salt glaze
A glaze formed by introducing salt into a hot kiln. The vaporized salt combines with the silica in the clay body, forming a sodium silicate glaze on the surface. It also combines with the silica in the kiln bricks, coating them with a glaze that will be transferred to any ware fired in the kiln later. Salt glazing releases noxious and toxic fumes.
