Do You Like Crackled Glazes?

Recommended Posts

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.

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.
