Crystalline Vase

After a lot of experimentation, Peggy has been producing crystalline glazes for the past 3 years. This unique and difficult technique produces gem-like formations in a glassy background. Crystals are formed by reproducing a phenomena similar to the natural occurrence of frost on a window, or crystals in rock formation. Using a complex firing schedule of specific heating, cooling and soaking, crystals are manipulated to grow in different sizes, shapes and numbers. The glaze contains a high level of zinc, and a low level of alumina. The result is a stunning, rarely seen glaze.
