Dimpled glaze is a glaze surface with tiny holes that look as if they were produced by pressing the point of a pin into it; these are considered a glaze imperfection which can be caused by firing too quickly. Another cause can be a rough surface of bisque; the glaze sinks into the spaces leaving a dimple or indent.
