Crackle Glaze Raku Thrown Pot 0177


Description

Raku is a firing technique whose name originated in 16th-century Japan. This type of glaze is designed to produce cracks in the glaze's surface during rapid cooling. During the reduction phase, smoke produced by the burning of the combustible material penetrates the cracks.

This leaves a very pleasing, semi-random, crackle pattern that I find very appealing.

Approx Size: 3x5in 7x14cm
Price: £45 (including VAT & delivery)
