Sunset colorful ceramic vase was wheel thrown and altered. You will love the vivid red orange with crackle, your own personal sunset. The alteration has great movement in this piece.

Placed in the raku kiln the propane gas is slowly taken up to 1840 degrees. The kiln is then opened and the red hot piece is taken out and sprayed with a chemical that gives it the wonderful colors. It is then wrapped in newspaper and a damp towel to set and cool. You will see the areas of black on the piece is smoke. This will not wash off.

Raku is porous and therefore will not hold water. If you are using this with live plants, place a small glass of water into the raku piece and pop your flowers into that. Not food safe and is not intended for food. Due to the nature of this firing process some pieces will sometimes (not always) leave a minor crack...this will not effect it's use.

I do not use stock photos. You will receive the actual piece photographed. I do my best to get accurate colors represented in the photos.

Want to know more about me and a little bit of the clay process? Read more on my "about" page. Includes a couple of photos other than my pottery.
