The box is about 2 inches high, 3.25 inches square. It was handmade from slabs of clay. After bisque firing the design was drawn on the box with wax. Glazes were applied by hand.
The box is then placed in a specially built kiln and heated until the glaze has melted. Still glowing with intense heat, it is removed from the kiln. This thermal shock causes the glaze to crackle.
Then the box is placed into a container of sawdust. The sawdust ignites and produces a smoky atmosphere where carbon is absorbed into the unglazed clay and the crackled glaze.
Each piece has its own distinct crackle pattern and is unique in the way the carbon darkens the clay.
*Raku work is not designed to hold water or food.
There are four felt pads on the bottom of the box to protect your furniture.
