Crystals are growing

Cobalt Crystalline Bowl

Though I have been planning this for some time—only over the last 4 to 5 years have I been working with crystalline glazes. A process much more demanding that non-crystalline because the effect is literally grown by precisely ramping and soaking the molten glaze to develop a wide variety of crystalline patterns. I make a photo series of the developing crystals to determine the precise moment when the crystal patterns reach a desired ratio. Many may find the technical aspects of my new adventure tiresome but I’m enjoying every minute.
