I don't have a recipe for temmoku that makes iron crystals, but I have seen
it occur with some fairly standard temmoku glazes that were cooled extremely
slowly near top temperatures or even held at high temperatures like a
crystaline glaze fire.

I've also seen the floating iron crystals in work that is reduction cooled.
