Surface treatments, layering, dripping glazes and crawling glazes for porcelain

They have gone in the opposite direction: cracks, exfoliations, drippings of the glazes, traditionally unwanted in the firing, have become desired and appreciated effects to highlight a piece and to use as refined decorations.
