The skull was glazed with "American White" or "American Brown", depending on who you are talking to. It seems that the smoother the area you glaze, the fewer crackles you get. The bearded man was unglazed, hence the black finish. The ear, mouth and eye were glazed with White Crackle. The four men in a row were made in a great hurry, and look all the more relaxed for that. They are in yet another glaze, composition unknown, but there are tiny glints of red in it, which I think indicates iron. The glazes were mixed by our friend in the village, who owns the Raku kiln.
