Sorry, phone photos ...
The light blue is like crackled glass, more so than most Hagi I observed.
The crackle staining is still ... young ... and exhibits the awkwardness of youth. To me, it seems many blue glazes in Hagi are more intermintent and sporadic in their staining of crackles ... like they are still trying to figure out how to stain ... if that makes sense?
Other hagi glazes often seem to be born to stain, it is in their genes, instinct.
