A timeless, unique jar....a wonderfully distinctive vessel you will want to display in your home.
A great addition to your raku pottery collection. Or if you want to send this jar as a gift , we will wrap it in colorful tissue and tie a ribbon around it. We are also happy to include a personal message from you.

This piece of art pottery is about 5 inches tall and about 6.25 inches in diameter.

This jar was thrown on the wheel. The lid was thrown then hand formed elements were added.

After bisque firing, the body of the jar was glazed with a creamy white crackle glaze. The lid and the foot were left unglazed.

Next ,we placed the jar in a specially built kiln and heat it until the glaze melts. The jar is still glowing with intense heat when Steve removes it from the kiln. This thermal shock causes the glaze to crackle.

Then the jar 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.

After the pot has cooled , we have to scrub off all of the soot and sawdust. NOT our favorite part!

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.
* some customers use these jars for urns. This jar holds about 4 cups or 57.75 cubic inches.
