Announcement   Raku pottery Cremation Urns, Cache Pots and decorative ceramics.

Pieces are made to order, please expect a 1-3 week delivery time unless other arrangements are made.
I have been working with Raku since early 1970 and find it a versatile decorative style, fitting into a wide range of decors. The range of Raku colors was chosen to blend in and bridge to colors in your home. Some of the raku colors are traditional and some contemporary.

The pottery is all cast from my originals which makes the shapes and sizes very consistent and delivery times predictable. The Raku glazes have a random quality and can vary depending on glaze thickness and firing conditions. It is always a subjective call in ceramics as to what is a technical flaw or an aesthetic quality, I do my best to make that distinction on a piece to piece basis, please keep this in mind if you have a low tolerance for glaze inconsistencies.

Cachepots or orchid planters have been a main stay of this line for many years, a cache pot or flower bowl is an ideal choice for your favorite orchid or exotic flora.


Dodero Urns are a good choice for a decorative accent, or a custom container for the ashes of a loved one.

About

Artist Statement

When starting pottery in 1970 most potters were following the Asian or European tradition of design. My inspiration came from the many fine examples of Native American ceramic design: Mimbres, Sikyatki and Pre Columbian were my primary departure points. The focus has been to combine, distill and contemporize these styles and to define the archetypes from which they evolved. The last 25 years has been spent exploring Asian motifs and finding a fusion/commonality with the West. The techniques and materials employed for surface decoration are developed to achieve a classic but natural appearance. The hope is to produce works that will not be clichés and will withstand the test of time. The Archetypes and designs in the works are meaningful to me but the viewer should derive their own meaning. "I feel each piece is made for someone; I just have to wait for him or her to claim it"
Decorative Ceramics / Pottery in Raku and stoneware are the primary focus of Dodero Studio Ceramics. Spending many years as a Gallery owner / operator, studio potter and design consultant John Dodero has developed a simple and powerful design style to complement any décor.
The fusion of Asian and Native American design has proved to be traditional yet contemporary. The calm presence satisfies practical décor needs without being a cliché or appears as ethno ketch. The strong ceremonial style and natural gourd shapes developed over many years of Native American inspired work has been blended with a distinctly Asian look.
The many choices of items include Raku Cachepots and planters for orchids, Raku decorative ceramic Urns and decorative pieces.
Our Raku Urns were developed in the late 80” in an attempt to fuse the east and west they are available is a range of colors and sizes.
The Raku Cachepots are to be used a decorative container for a potted plant. They are sized to fit the standard planter sizes and are the perfect home for orchids or indoor plants.
The Raku process was brought to the West coast in the late 1960’s, over the years it has diverged quite a bit form it’s Japanese origin. The U.S. approach has revolved around a post fire reduction, as opposed to the Japanese style of plunging the ware in water after being removed from the kiln. This difference in firing technique gives the Western style a distinctive crackle pattern when carbon is trapped in crazing and giving the bare clay a carbon luster.
When Copper is use in the glaze formula “copper flashing” can be achieved giving the work a metallic luster. This metallic look was widely used in the 80’s and 90’s and a majority of people identifies this look with Raku, the truth being the metallic look is a very recent derivation the 500-year-old process.
The approach taken by Dodero Studio is the use of thick or fat glazes striving for a random crazing pattern over a simple refined form. A wide range of coloring oxides are used in the glazes to meet the many Décor needs. “We want to match your couch”, as odd as this sounds we understand you have to live with our pots and we want to produce ware to complement your décor and create a harmonious environment.

A little information about pottery: All the pieces in this line are cast from my originals and are very consistent in size and shape. Please keep in mind that due to the nature of the raku process glaze variations can and will occur. Most pieces will be very close to perfect, what is a technical flaw or aesthetic attribute can be a subjective call and I do my best to go over each piece and make sure it is up to my standers, if you have a low tolerance for glaze variations you may want to reconsider your purchase.
