Losing Myself In The Cracks

“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

I really love the way the cracks bend around the neck area

Do you enjoy looking at
“what can be found in the cracks”?


    1. Sometimes they even look like little characters! It really is something neat to see up close.

  1. Cracks are like battle scars, proving we’ve endured the fires of life and come out alive and stronger (hopefully). I love the detail and personality cracks give raku objects. They add a sense of antiquity and elegance and let you know there’s plenty of stories behind all those cracks, if only you’ll look and listen with your heart. Your work is inspiring on so many levels. 🙂

    1. Thank you Mike! You always have such nice comments to read and engage with! Thank you for taking time out of your day to reply 🙏

      Also I agree on the cracks! I love how they show up of their own accord but always have something to share
