About the Crystal vases
The Crystal Glaze is an enchanting acquaintance, it fascinates, sparkles and steals the image with all its 'glossyness'. The formation of the crystals is a combination of the material & ingredients in the glaze as well as the temperature of the firing. Some of the ingredients are attracted to each other at particular temperatures and thereby the crystals grow in the surface. I control the temperature changes in the firing and thus I shape the crystals. I can control the shape, size and color, but where and how many come - it is an interplay between the porcelain and the glaze.
Crystal glaze is a 'difficult friend' who is very sensitive to heat, thickness and certainly also weather conditions - there are always challenges with a Crystal glaze, which makes it extremely exciting to open an oven - every time even after more than 12 years.
