Raku Moonface Pendant

Painted by fire and kissed by smoke! Bright copper, blue and violet flashes on a metallic satin matte surface. Bright spots on cheeks and forehead add a special touch. Splendid example of raku!
Dia. 1 3/8" Flat back signed and dated. Nickle free bail.

About Raku:
When the kiln reaches 1850 degrees, the red hot pieces are removed from the kiln and placed into a barrel of paper, straw, sawdust which instantly ignites. The barrel is then tightly covered and the work is allowed to smoke for a duration. Raku is so trans-formative. The glaze looks like copper with green-blue patina highlights as well as many other colors. Truly painted by fire and smoke. The crackles are part of the rustic raku surface and not defective. Raku is light yet durable. Great for casual and evening wear accessories. As a design element, there are so many ways to go...it truly is remarkable!
