White-Crackle Raku Vase*  

9 in x 6 in 
(23 cm x 15 cm)

The piece was thrown by me on a pottery wheel and then trimmed to the final form.  After the initial bisque firing, I sprayed several layers of a white crackle glaze across the piece, and then fired outside in a gas Raku kiln.  Once red hot, the piece is placed into a metal reduction chamber full of hardwood sawdust that becomes engulfed in fire.  The lid is placed over the chamber to create a reduction environment, which pulls the carbon from the fire deep into the cracks created by the glaze.  Once cool, the piece is carefully cleaned ready for its next adventure.

*Please note that this is a "low fire" ceramic process,. The surface is still porous, so it is not considered water-tight or food safe.  This piece should only be cleaned with a dry, soft cloth. Please feel free to ask any questions about care and cleaning.
