Raku Fired Red Crackle Vessel
Thrown narrow neck vessel . Raku fired with our own recipe red crackle glaze. Raku is a rapid firing technique, adapted from an ancient Japanese firing. A small group of approx 3-4 pieces are placed in a raku gas fired kiln and fired up to around 920°c, each piece is then individually lifted out of the kiln molten hot and placed in a bin of paper & wood shavings which instantly combust. The actual finish is then down to careful timing, longer in the air will give bigger heavier crazing, covering the vessel quickly produces smaller crazing. The smoke in the reduction bin penetrates the crazing in the glaze giving each pot its unique surface.
Unique one off piece. Size: H17cm x W15cm
