This suggests the existence of a hitherto unknown Adams sibling, Crizzly, a glassblower who flees to Ireland to work in the Waterford crystal factory, when falsely accused of murder. Not to be confused with the wet-blanket brother Drizzly Adams, the family dipsomaniac Swizzly, their sultry sister Sizzly, or their wigger sibling Fo'shizzly (ma nizzly).
In glassmaking, this is the result of chemical instability in glass caused by an imbalance in the ingredients of the batch, particularly an excess of alkali or a deficiency of stabilizer (usually lime). Because of the instability, atmospheric moisture causes a network of cracks in the surface that may feel damp or oily. Crizzling can be slowed or halted, but it can't be reversed with present technology. Crizzled glass is sometimes described as "sick" or "weeping." Also spelled "crisseling."
