Small round Raku fired form. 11cm tall, 9cm wide
Raku Fired form
This piece has been fired in a Raku kiln to 1000c. It is made for display and is not as robust as stoneware fired works. Handle carefully and wash by hand.
This piece was coated with two different copper glazes separated by a wax resist line. It was rapidly fired in a raku kiln to 1000c before being removed when red hot with tongs and then placed in a metal bin containing sawdust. The burning causes reaction with the copper and blackens the unglazed areas resulting in the amazing surface.
