Cone 6 Crackle Vase

Designer: Carmen Allen



  1. Begin with soft fired stoneware bisque. 
  2. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust. 
  3. Use a pencil to divide the top of the vase into even sections. This is to help layout a symmetrical design. 
  4. Use the SG-401 Black Designer Liner to add lines to divide the sections and then fill the sections in with circles.  
  5. Think SW-111 Wrought Iron slightly (about the consistency of heavy cream) and roll the inside of the vase. Use a Script Liner to apply the not thinned Wrought Iron as a band about 2/3 of the way down.  
  6. Use a fan brush to apply 3 coats of CC-108 China Sea to the top section of the vase.  
  7. Use a fan brush to apply 2 coats of SG-201 Black Cobblestone to the bottom section of the vase.  
  8. Use a clean sponge to wipe the excess glaze off of the foot. 
  9. Fire to cone 5/6. (Sample was fired to cone 6)
