Reactive glazes, especially darker colored types like the one on the left, distract the eye with their visual character, this tends to hide defects (like pinholes, blisters, bare spots, scratches). But matte glazes, especially whites like the one on the right, make tiny defects in the glaze more visible. Their mixing, application and firing require much more attention to detail to produce a defect-free surface.
