Then part of me sees the crystaline shapes, the deep pits, the depth of glaze that varies as it breaks on the rim, showing the stoneware through it's transparency...and maybe there's beauty there as well.
Here the same glaze was applied, somewhat thinner, on white clay. The wine red was put on the rim first, I think. The interior clear had already been applied. And then the bottom was dipped into the celadon crystaline glaze. I love that lip where the combined glazes still look fluid. Seeing the red through the crazing is also a fun thing to do.
