Trying to describe the slight metallic pearlescent cream glaze, and how it interacts with the fluid blue gloss glaze is downright impossible. The recrystalization of the fluid blue is almost like watching ice form on a still pond. This platter was shown in the Ithaca Ceramics Exhibition back in 2008 and is still available for purchase or for exhibition.
As you get closer and closer to the details, you can see that there are crystals that are partly submerged in the blue glaze. I wonder if they are growing up or down through the glass!
