glazed porcelain

Glazed porcelain is a type of porcelain tile which has a glaze on the surface which is different in color than the body (i.e., biscuit) of the tile.  The chief benefit of a glazed porcelain is that the surface appearance is limited only by creativity.  Any color or combination of colors can be included in a glaze and fused to the body of a porcelain.  The disadvantage of a glazed porcelain comes at the risk that a chip in the tile's surface will reveal the different color of the tile's body.  Such a risk does not exist with color-body porcelain nor through-body porcelain.
