ONE OF A KIND Raku pit fired Oak Leaf pendant bead for your creative side or just a focal piece on a chord or chain.

This pendant is beautiful! Very beautiful ~ metallic highlights

Size 2.00" X 2.00" Raku Glazed ~ the ancient art of fire pit glazing ~ teal green, turquoise, cobalt blue glaze with copper and gold highlights ~ finished on the back as well

Each raku fired piece is one of a kind ~ no two pieces will ever look the same

The process of Raku firing differs from other firing methods because the pieces are removed from the kiln at their maximum temperature.

Thermal shock of this rapid cooling is stressful on the pottery. It is achieved by using an open clay body. The porosity of the clay body acts like a shock absorber, preventing the body from immediately fracturing when the piece is removed from the kiln.

Raku glazes are often fractured, which are referred to as Crazing. These crackle glazes are enhanced by the post firing smoking of Raku pieces that embeds carbon into the crackles of the glaze.


This is the exact bead you will receive
Much more beautiful in hand ~ camera flash not included
