A Little Glaze Magic on the Bonsai Pots

Sometimes a little magic happens when the pots are quietly sitting in the kiln getting fired.
Once the fierce glowing heat has done its thing and all is calm and cool once again, the kiln opening to see what magic has been created is quite an event in itself.
I had no idea what would happen with this layered double dipped glaze.  Fortunately the combination was written down in hope that some magical glaze could be recreated!  Loving the almost crystal like light green combination on this pot.
You never quite know just how fine the "crackles" will appear on the pot sometimes.  You have a fair idea, but the very finest fissures are the most stunning.
The difference between a single/double layer of glaze is certainly obvious.
