Hand Built Raku Vase

58.00

Raku is a Japanese firing technique that places glowing red pots pulled from the kiln into closed containers filled with combustible materials like sawdust, dried leaves or paper. The resulting smoke causes unglazed areas to blacken and glazed areas to craze and crackle. Soot and ash are scrubbed away revealing metallic colors and textures.

No matter how much you try to direct your piece, you have little control once it is turned over to the fire gods...they decide the outcome...this may be why Raku is my cherished firing process!

Wabi sabi, spectacular golden to Prussian greens, earth red, metallic sheen, scored markings, my fingerprints.

8 1/2” H X 5 1/4” at widest point.
