Description

This vase features one of our unique crystalline glazes. These glazes result in gorgeous, truly one-of-a-kind pieces. The patterns you see on the pieces are not drawn or placed there--rather these shapes are crystals that grow during the firing process. Just as the sizes and shapes of snowflakes are determined by the conditions and temperatures in which the snowflakes form, the growth and shapes of these crystals are completely influenced by the temperature and conditions that exist inside the kiln during the firing.


The crystals start at a nucleation point (the center of each crystal) and grow outward. Depending on the temperatures present during firing and the components of the glaze, different spokes, fans, and petals are formed. The main body of the crystal may also show growth rings (which are marked by changes in the color of the crystal) and they're often outlined by one or more halos (dark bands around the outer edge of the crystal). Pictures really don't do them justice: when seen in person the crystals often have an iridescent quality, and sometimes even a bit of a holographic or three-dimensional effect.


There is good reason why pieces with crystalline glazes are highly sought after by collectors and ceramic enthusiasts. Not only are the pieces striking and beautiful, the very process of creating and firing pieces with crystalline glazes is an art-form in and of itself. It takes special techniques and precision to be successful, and it often takes years of fine-tuning these techniques to achieve the results you see here at Poison Creek Pottery.
