This morning I was taking some wilted flowers out of this vase and I was looking at the celedon green crackle glaze, a glaze that was developed by Chinese and Korean artisans.  My cousin calls it cracked glazed and when I think about it, its an apt description. 

The striking pattern was an accident in the firing process, but it became a desirable quality and potters tried to reproduce this effect.  Today you can still find crackle glazed pottery and it is also used as a glaze for ceramic tiles.  The ceramic tile on the right is manufactured by McIntyre Tile   in Healdsberg, CA.
