The lid of this handmade box features a white rabbit. There is a turquoise dragonfly inside the box.
The sides of the box are glazed a wonderful rich green. Steve makes this glaze.

This box would make a wonderfully unique addition to your box collection or a one of a kind gift for any nature lover. It can hold small treasures such as your rings or other small jewelry pieces.

If you do want to send this box as a gift, we will wrap it in colorful tissue and tie a ribbon around it. We are also happy to enclose a personal message from you.

The box is about 2.25 inches high, 4 inches in diameter. It was thrown on the potter's wheel by Steve. After bisque firing Sue drew the design on the box with wax and applied the glaze by hand.

The box is then placed in a specially built raku kiln and heated until the glaze has melted. Still glowing with intense heat, it is removed from the kiln. This thermal shock causes the glaze to crackle.

Next the box 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.

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.
There are felt pads on the bottom of the box to protect your furniture.
