Using Sodium Silicate to Create Crackled Texture with Hsin-Chuen Lin

He starts with a lump of clay and some sodium silicate… 20 minutes later? I really want to try this!

In this video, HsinChuen Lin demonstrates another way of throwing which is using a sodium silicate to create crackled texture.

Wow! This simple technique creates beautiful patterns before your eyes!

Hsin-Chuen Lin was influenced by the American contemporary ceramics, the freedom and spontaneous of making pots. He works mainly on a potter’s wheel.
