Crazing the Full Moon


February full moon through the trees at the Wayfarers Chapel.

Crazing - The cracking of a glaze on a fired ceramic pot. It is the result of the glaze shrinking more than the clay body in cooling process.

Not knowing what crazing is, I completely misunderstood the title.
Now I can say that 'Crazing the Moon' is at least as beautiful as the image itself. Great idea.

this too will pass said...

From the title that appeared with the thumbnail in my blog list I actually thought that this was a particularly beautiful piece of ceramic ware. Now I see it's a particularly beautiful moon.

Some glazes are created to crack. Sometimes it happens when you wish it wouldn't. Then again crazing isn't always a crack but when the clay pulls away from the clay body and thn thickens around the edge.

This photo makes me want to howel.
