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.

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