Craquelé: a distinctive note of glazed lava stone

Why craquelé?

Craquelé, or craquelure, is a french definition acquired from history of art, to point out the fine pattern of dense “cracking” formed on the surface of ancient paintings.
On lava stone glazed surfaces, being a simply a physical consequence of glazing process, craquelé is an aesthetic value of enameled lava stone products and tiles.
Craquelé intensity is variable, as it is a natural consequence of high temperatures stone glazing with crystalline colors.
This is distinctive and so much appreciated by lava stone lovers.
