Check it over very closely. Make sure that there isn't even a pinhole sized spot that isn't glazed. If there is, when you pour the gel in the candle, gel will be absorbed into that little hole(believe it or not), you'll get tons of bubbles coming out of the hole, and the unglazed ceramic will look like alka seltzer dissolving, and it will be all over your candle! Needless to say, it would be unsafe besides. And if that doesn't happen(if the gel is poured at cooler temps), gel will still get inside it, and it could catch on fire. Sometimes you can't even see these small pinholes, and most people that sell ceramics for gel candles recommend double glassing, or crimping the wick above the embed. HTH.:D
