A small-sized and round bellied raku fired decorative vase by Sarah Horlock. Hand decorated with either a blue, with flashes of metallic copper lustre, or neutral oatmeal glaze with free-flowing brushwork,. The beautiful crackled glazes characteristic of rakuware are not watertight, but are perfect as a statement piece in the home.  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.

Avoid displaying in strong sunlight for long periods to protect the lustre and smoked surface.

Approximately 8cm high by 8cm wide.
