This organic nature inspired button symbolizes harmony with nature. The raku ceramic button is attached to natural leather strands highlighted in intervals by copper beads and natural aventurine. This fun necklace is finished with copper hook clasp. Good Luck Chineese sign is impressed in the middle of the button. TREE BUTTON has been handcrafted from clay, glazed and then fired in a raku kiln. This Raku glazes contain a lot of copper oxide that gives the fired pieces: green, red, blue and copper shades. The button is 2" in diameter. Size: 20" long.

Each ceramic necklace is an original piece of artwork. It is signed by me on the bottom.

To fully understand the Raku Firing Process, one would have to delve into and study Japanese culture. Raku is
deeply associated and intertwined with the ancient Japanese tea ceremony. Serving and drinking tea using Raku
fired bowls is an age old “happening” that is still performed in some areas of Japan.
Raku glazes contain a lot of copper that gives the fired pieces: green, red, blue and copper shades. The temperature is rather quickly run up to about 1800-2000 degrees F and then the kiln is raised, revealing red hot pieces. The piece then placed in a bucket containing combustible materials. As soon as the red hot piece comes in contact with the combustible materials, spontaneous combustion occurs. The lid is put over the can to make reduction atmosphere and let the flames seek for the oxygen removing it from the glaze and clay body of the piece. The result is black clay body and very interesting colors on the piece. No two pieces of Raku will ever be the same. It's like Christmas!


Hope you enjoy my art!
