Pekar's Crystalline Glaze is his most acclaimed collection. All the ceramic vases in this collection have a special glaze-like effect. To create this effect, Pekar uses a unique mixture of ceramic glaze ingredients. The glaze is then applied to vases and fired to high temperatures. This technique isn't as simple as it sounds. Pekar has spent days with disastrous results until he had a successful formulation.
Creating these vases require special care as crystalline can crack during the cooling time. Pekar uses different color combinations, crystals, and design shapes very creatively to make Crystalline Glaze Vases.
'After many months of testing various glazes, I became very interested in the Crystal Glazes. I have put in many hours for the research and developed my glazes. It took many mistakes, testing, remixing, and experimentation to achieve the results that I wanted finally.'
