This exquisite grolleg porcelain piece is a combination of pottery, chemistry and geology. It was thrown on the potter’s wheel by Andrew Boswell. The glazing process was a collaborative effort between Andrew and Phil Hamling using Phil’s technically intricate crystalline glaze methods. Andrew’s fluid form is the perfect canvas for Phil’s ceramic engineering expertise. When this process is done precisely correct, crystals grow in the glaze surface during the firing of the pot. The patterns formed look very similar to the crystal patterns of frost on a window pane.
