Crackle Effect Glaze

I don’t know how they got the crackle effect on these. When I was in High School we made raku pottery. We used the kiln that was for metal enameling. We kept an eye on the piece. When the glaze flows, it looks very shiny. As soon as all of the pot looked like the glaze flowed, the minerals that made the glaze finish melted, we took the pot out and put it into sawdust. The change in temperature made the glaze crackle. The sawdust would catch fire from the heat and make the black in the crackles.
