RE: flaking glaze

Me again. A thought - I refired one of my faience (Egyptian Paste) shabtis with the other items to be glazed. Might fumes or chemicals reacted with that to cause the glaze to flake off?

What would make glaze flake off after it's been fired? The color is perfect, but it's flaking off the clay pieces which were bisque fired.
