Raku Vase (22133)
This raku pot has texture on the surface that was added at the throwing stage. While the pot was still quite narrow I add the texture to the surface, then carry on throwing to stretch the texture and create a more accentuated surface. The raku firing process adds another layer of interest by making the colour and finish unpredicatble.
These raku pots are not water proof, as due to the firing process there will be cracks and fisures in the pot itself. They are not safe to drink or eat out of and should only be handwashed. Never put them in the microwave! They may have a slight smell of bonfires, this is again from the firing process whcih involves putting them in sawdust to create the many colours.
