ANSWER A.M. Nolt, New Holland, answers the reader
who wanted to know about china that gets fine cracks in it.
She got her information from a potter that she had visited. She
writes that when china gets fine cracks, it is called crazing. It
happens when china is stored without using or washing. To
prevent china from crazing, was in warm suds and water
about two or three times a year. This keeps the glaze pliable.
Wash in warmer and warmer water within several days. When
pouring boiling water in a cup, pour it over a spoon in the cup.
To clean crazed china, soak in bleach or boil in milk.
