firing clay with metal

I have two kilns that I have fired using some metal in the clay for
sculpture. I want to make some functional ware and am wondering about how to
test for metal in clay or in the brick and if there is metal leeched into
the brick I've heard there may be a chemical to use to draw the metal out of
the brick. Anyone know about this?
