● The thermal expansion mismatch between the body and the glaze is what leads to cracking patterns.

● After the glaze solidifies (as the kiln cools) ,the glaze shrinks more than the body, to relieve the tension of being stretched, it cracks .

● Many people use crackle glazes for antiquing, because peeling, crackled paint has an old-fashioned look.
