Question Are ceramic decorations safe in the tank?

Hi Everyone,
I ordered a "aquarium safe" ceramic sign from a person who does ceramics, and got it today and saw that the inside is not finished. I didn't really think about that, but does that matter? Are ceramics safe? I know she glazed the outside, but just thought I'd throw the question out there before I put this in my tank.

I use dollar store tea light holders as caves in many of my tanks, some of which are unfinished inside and I have yet to see issues, there is also a trend of people using ceramic flower pots that are unglazed and I have yet to hear of any illnesses or water fluctuations.

If you are particularly unsure you can always treat some water and place the decoration in a bucket to soak for several days and see how it holds up/the water readings. or play it super safe by spraying the inside with an aquarium safe spraypaint.

Thanks Taeanna!
I think I'll soak it and see what happens. Hopefully all goes well. And I really like the idea of the tea light holders as caves! I may have to give that a try as well!
