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.

  1. As a crystal healer, I can definitely appreciate the beauty and complexity of crystals, even in their glaze form! Dan Weaver’s dedication to creating stunning crystalline patterns is truly impressive. I imagine it must take a lot of patience and precision to get the perfect ratio of crystals in each piece. But let’s be real, working with crystals isn’t all sunshine and rainbows. I remember the first time I accidentally dropped a crystal during a healing session and it bounced all over the room like a pinball. Talk about a chaotic energy! And don’t even get me started on trying to explain to TSA why my carry-on bag is filled with rocks. All joking aside, I truly believe in the power of crystals to bring balance and healing to our lives. Whether it’s through the intricate patterns of a crystalline glaze or the raw energy of a natural stone, these beautiful creations of the earth have so much to offer us. So keep on growing those crystals, Dan, and may they bring joy and wonder to all who encounter them.
