Onion- and garlic-crock

Hi guys
I have now started on a garlic crock that looks like a garlic, and an onion
crock that looks like an onion.... shapewise now, hopefully finished color
also.
Shape and all are fine - and making the tops into lids is not an issue...
but
what do I do after the shapes are finished, so that the crocks are as
functional as possible? Do they need to breathe, so I sould have holes in
the lids or low-fire (1000C) them? or is it Ok to glaze outside? inside?
I want my garlic and onion to keep better in these than in an open basket on
the kitchen counter. I am hoping that at least the lack of light will
contribute to that, but want to also make the crocks best possible for the
purpose.
Thanks for any and all help!

Hello Marianne,
Both our Onion and Garlic Pots have plenty of ventilation; holes in the lid and around the top of the pot. Both are earthenware and only glazed on the inside. Having said that I don't think firing temperature is an issue. Ventilation certainly is. We keep both in a cool dark cupboard, they keep longer that way.

If you really wanted air to circulate, wouldn't it be better to have holes around the bottom and top - not just around the top?
From what you say about glaze, I suspect that glazing doesn't really matter, though from a cleaning-perspective, it would probably be fine to glaze both outside and inside.
Marianne ..... punching some holes right after I send this.... and YES it is late! but I love to sit in my workshoppe! :-)
