The Crackle Lantern was hand-built with care by cutting, carving and sculpting a slab of Buncombe White clay. Each hand-cut round serves as a peep hole for light to pass through the clay sculpture. This tealight candle holder has been glazed in a simple, white crackle glaze and has been raku-fired in the American style of traditional Japanese raku firings. This lantern is one-of-a-kind, totally unique, and no two pieces will ever be the same.

Candle Holder Size: 5 3/4" tall by 3.5" wide (in diameter at the base); approximately 5.25" wide at widest point

This candle holder will include a mild, vanilla-scented tealight.

What is American Raku?

Long used for tea ceremony ware in Japan, raku traditionally involves firing a pot in a kiln at lower temperatures, only to remove it and plunge it in water while still red-hot. American raku involves "smoking" the piece instead, by plunging it into combustible materials such as sawdust or newspapers instead of water. This method was discovered in 1960 by the Father of American Raku, Paul Soldner who, while practicing the Japanese method, accidentally dropped his bowl in a bed of leaves. After sparking a fire around the pot and burning the leaves surrounding it, the combination of smoky results and an iridescent sheen were shown.
