English translation:system of craters/holes, cracked surface
Explanation:
Craquelado appears to be fine surface cracks, as evidenced by various website referring to fine lamps with 'acabado de craquelado,' going on to instruct how to make the cracked finish.

As for pilancones, check the web-site below for a picture of "pilancones en la superficie lateral de piedras."
