Hey, she dug it out for me and said to go ahead and share it with you all.
She also suggested not putting the pot into the redux chamber right away so
the pot has time to crackle.

Here's the recipe:

Large Crackle

G.B. 60
Spod 35
Ball clay Kent. 5

a bit higher temp than most raku
medium application
doesn't run
don't apply to heavily (ugly surface)

have fun,
