 Naked raku fired ceramic vessel.  The piece has been thrown and gently distorted. When leather hard we apply several layers of coloured terra sigillata and burnish to get a smooth glossy surface. At this stage the pot is bisque fired to 950°c. A linear pattern is then masked off enhancing the undulation on the form. A layer of resist slip and glaze is applied.  The piece is placed in a raku kiln and fired to 825°c. It is lifted from the kiln when molten and placed in a reduction bin filled with paper and wood chips. A lid is put on allowing the carbon to be trapped by the clay body.  When the piece is removed from the reduction bin a light spray of water is applied and the glaze falls off easily revealing the unique crackle. 

Unique one off piece. Size: H: 27cm x W:16cm

 Care of Raku Pottery : Wipe gently with a damp cloth. Due to the low firing process raku ceramics are not shock-resistant nor waterproof or frost proof so suitable for indoor decorative use only.
