Macro-crystalline glazes are known to be easier to produce at higher temperatures (above 1250°C). At these temperatures the glaze moves more easily into the molten stage, in which all the ingredients go into solution. The slowly cooling glaze offers the ideal conditions for crystal to grow freely. In terms of semi-mass production however, such high temperatures are not cost effective and limit the shapes and forms of the wares.

By systematic investigation I have discovered routes around this problem and have developed crystalline glazes that are suitable for small production and can be applied to wares intended for domestic use.
