How to achieve this glaze effect

Recommended Posts

The glaze effect in the attached picture happened by happy accident where a 2nd glaze applied somewhat thickly to the top of the pot 'cracked' and the 1st glaze shows through. I like this and want more of the cracking next time. Any suggestions about technique or an additive to improve the chance that it will happen again?

 

This is fired to ^6 in electric kiln, and the glazes are Amaco PC Light Sepia over Deep Firebrick.

If the bottom glaze is shiny and the top glaze is matt, you can get this affect.

TJR.
