This charming little raku bottle has a family of Quail on it.

It was thrown on a potters wheel, bisque fired in a electric kiln to 1800 degrees. Glaze is applied to the pot and then fired in a Raku kiln to 1800 degrees. Then it was taken out of the kiln and placed into a aluminum trash can with either sawdust or newspaper. This sets the paper on fire, then the lid is put on the can. It is allowed to sit in can for 5 to 15 minutes in order to starve the interior of the can of oxygen and provide the reducing atmosphere for the glaze and clay body. The carbon is pulled into the areas of the pot with no glaze and this turns those areas black. The pot is taken out of the can and dipped in a bucket of water to cool the pot and set the glaze. This firing technique is called Raku.

Size...3"tall by 2.25"wide. ((Sizes are approx.)
Color.. Very white and black

My Raku pots are not water proof( they don't hold water) or food safe. Raku pottery should not be sat in direct sun light, this will fade the colors. Not on all Raku but on some so why take the chance, just don't do it.. lol.. be safe. : )

Thank you for stopping buy.
