Raku is an unpredictable firing process developed in Japan over 600 years ago. Colors are created by fire pulling oxygen from the clay and glaze during the “reduction” phase. Pieces can be approximated but never duplicated. This makes each vessel a one-of-a-kind creation.
This little guy was fired using a raku process in the middle of the winter. The vase’s lid features a resting buck nestled in the the grass. We have a group of deer that live behind our house and feel bold enough to feed off of our catalpa tree seed pods all winter. We have had them staring in our patio door as we stoke our fireplace.
