Blisters of glaze, or craters that are the remnants of burst bubbles, sometimes revealing Cratering the bare clay underneath. are often a fault of over-firing or of firing too fast. If the blisters are more uniform and small then it can be a result of firing a high alkaline glaze too low. Glazes move through a boiling phase prior to smoothing out to a glossy glaze, then if heating continues they can start to boil again, depending on the materials used and the kinds of gasses released.
The shrinkage of the glaze during the early stages of melting pulls the glaze off the pot leaving bare unglazed areas. Most often caused by dust, dirt or oil on the bisqued pots. Other causes are surface texture, very viscous glazes, too thick glaze slop, or pots that are damp. Applying more glaze to the affected area and re-firing usually saves the pot. Some special effect glazes use certain ingredients deliberately to create a crawling glaze.
A network of fine cracks through the glaze. Caused when a glaze contracts more than the clay during cooling. A large mismatch in shrinkages will result in fine crazing. Alkaline glazes or very fluid glazes tend to craze, even if not immediately obvious, over time craze lines will appear. Adjust the glaze by adding silica or alumina, or replace the alkaline fluxes (soda and potash) with alkaline earths (calcium, magnesia) or with boron frits.
Tiny holes in the surface of the glaze, sometimes penetrating down to the surface of the clay. Can be the first sign of blistering, or crawling. Soaking of the kiln at top temperatures for up to a hour can help the glaze to heal over. Some viscous glazes or those with fluorine in them will pinhole more easily.
