By applying silver or gold leaf that is 0.3 – 0.4 microns thick on the base glaze and firing, the silver / gold leaf is torn into pieces as the base or glaze expands, creating an unexpected, complicated pattern. I use this as the base to make wired cloisonne. By combining transparent glaze and translucent glaze with the patterned base, I can make a unique three-dimensional piece.
