Ceramic Decorative Vase, Raku pitcher with Crackle White Glaze, Decorative Pitcher with Crackle Glaze

5 1/4" Tall 3 1/2" wide

This pitcher was thrown on the wheel with an altered lip to form the spout. Later a handle was added and it was bisque fired as any other piece.

A white crackle glaze was put on the piece before it went into the propane fired raku kiln. Once the piece was red hot and the glaze began to bubble then smooth out, it was removed from the kiln and had cold air blown on to it. This caused the glaze to crack into a beautiful spider web around the entire piece.

The pitcher was then placed into a lidded metal container filled with combustables such as paper, sawdust, and yard debris. This caught fire due to the extreme temperature of the pitcher. The smoldering black smoke caused a chemical reaction that stained the lines between the cracked glaze and the unglazed spots black.

Each of the pieces is unique because the kiln gods control the final outcome and craclke design not the potter.

This is NOT food safe or waterproof. Do not fill it with water or place in the dishwasher.
