10.5 diameter x 7.5cm deep
Small raku fired bowl with smooth black unglazed clay on the exterior providing a nice contrast to the white crackled glaze around the top. Deep blue interior.
Every raku fired piece is unique and dependent on many variables as to the resulting glaze effects. Each is a minor miracle of survival as it is pulled from a kiln at 1000degrees C and placed into a container full of combustible material which bursts into flames. The pot is then left with a lid covering it and later is retrieved and washed to find what effects have been transcribed to the pot. Any clay left unglazed will be blackened by the fire.
Raku pots are not food safe and cannot be put in the diswasher. They are not guaranteed to be waterproof but are best used for display or storing non-food items.
