All of our pieces are touched by hands many many times throughout their creation, so no two pieces will ever be alike. The images shown are the best representations of the glaze & form.
The Imperfections of Pottery Crystal Development Our crystalline glazes blossom randomly on the pottery’s surface like frost on a window. No two pieces will turn out the same. While the macrocrystalline development on glazes such as Winter Storm, Honey Green & Bahama Blue is very unpredictable, we always do our best to put together pottery with a harmony of tone & crystals per customer request.
Crazing A common cause is a mismatch between the thermal expansions of a glaze to that of the body on which it is held. Think glaze fit! Because our glaze is very thick and our pieces shrink approximately 20% during firing, crazing often results. Edgecomb Pottery pieces most often exhibit crazing in Seabreeze & Seaglass. It is not considered either cracked or flawed and in fact, can add texture and color to the piece. Crazing will not affect the integrity of our pottery.
Beauty Marks There are little bits of glaze floating within a kiln that randomly turn up as specks of color on a pot. You just never know what you're gonna get. :-)
