“There is a crack in everything.
That’s how the light gets in.”
~ Leonard Cohen
The cracks in raku glaze (crazing) are one of my favourite things.
I love spending time looking at the details of them and how they expand across a piece, knowing that I have helped them to grow with the choices I made during firing.
I also revel in how I do not control them; in the end I can only encourage them and then what comes is what comes.
letting go of control and allowing the cracks to speak in their own way
brings me peace.
slowing down and following the cracks
feels like a meditation
What do you think?
Do you enjoy letting go and looking at what can be found in the cracks?
