A medium-sized raku fired bowl, by Sarah Horlock, with a turned foot ring. Hand decorated with a white glaze with free-flowing brushwork, with flashes of metallic lustre. Fired to around 1000c then taken out of the kiln, causing the glazes to crack due to thermal shock. The pots are then placed into a smoking chamber fillled with sawdust or shredded paper, which ignites and smokes and stains the bare clay and crackled glaze a beautiful smoky black. The stained clay surface and base has been sealed with beeswax.
