I wanted to share this site with all crackle glaze lovers ....

My understanding is he does a third glaze firing to fill in those crackle lines with color.
Really lovely results.

Cool stuff Chris. I know many crystalline glazers who use this technique: or variations thereof. Actually looks to me as intentional glaze/clay interface checking (crackle). Then he is coming back and rubbing metal oxides in and refiring to 1350-1475. Look closely at the crackle areas: I see copper, manganese, iron, etc. Although, his process is off the charts-- exciting.

Not what I was expecting! Clever but I prefer the quiet really spaced crackle.

I love crackle when I wanted crackle. Not so much on food surfaces. Lol

I create order from chaos. And also, chaos from order.

Oh, wow, his work is lovely. Reminds me of mosaics and stained glass all at once.

Stained glass! That's it! It has the same intensity and glow! Well spotted Giselle5. (Whatever happened to Giselle4? Or 3? Or 2? Is there a mass de-giseller on the loose?) Sorry - I digress.

Lovely work, though I am a bit dubious about the claim that he invented the technique.  Potters have been emphasizing crackle using oxides for a very long time.

Got to agree with Ray here ... No potter should ever claim to have "invented" any technique until they walk through a lot of ancient pottery displays ... Real or in books ... You see everybody's work ...only made about 3,000 years ago.

agreed, chris. (cannot belive that two authors claim to have written the ceramic "bible")
