Thy judgment, when allowed By the chirurgeon, settles the debate. O useful metal! -- were it not for thee We'd grapple one another's ears alway: But when we hear thee buzzing like a bee We, like old Muhlenberg, "care not to stay." And when the quick have run away like pellets Jack Satan smelts the dead to make new bullets.

Lead has traditionally been a key ingredient in many glaze formulations. Since these can leach into liquids and foods, you should take this into account when shopping for ceramic pieces to be used for food. The danger is in the cumulative effects that occurs with the repeated use of everyday functional pieces. Fortunately, most functional ware is fired to higher temperatures where lead, commonly used as a flux (melting agent) in lower fired glazes, will not be present or would tend to have been burned off during the glaze firing.
