I can see why it would be popular the glaze almost looks like a primitive pot fired in a bonfire and got hot enough to turn gray.  I was part of the Anazai research group and it was hard to get the trench fire temp high enough, all of our pots were extremely fragile.

The glaze looks very much like the native basalt that the local Indians used to carve their petroglyphs in.  I use it single fired on Laguna MR5 at cone 5. Put it on leather hard let it dry a little,and inscribe the pattern.  real easy and forgiving glaze. People like the look here in Santa Fe.
