The Raku Bowls were handmade on the pottery wheel and fired under high temperatures with a glaze, taken out of the extremely hot gas kiln and put into a reduction chamber, to get the amazing play of colors, and crackles that are penetrated by the smoke and bring out these interesting surface of texture, color, crackles and natural material.
The Raku Bowls were created just for you. They have classic simplicity and at the same time elegance and a profound earthiness, that will transfer when you hold it. It was created for you to experience all the elements and the process of transformation that this sphere has gone through.
It was created for you, so you would be reminded of how the process of creation can be so full of extreme power and how all elements come together to bring the end result.
This new collection has been in the works for weeks and I am so excited to present it, Raku being one of my favorite things in the world to do. All elements come together… Earth, Air, Fire and Water… It is magic and it is somewhat unpredictable.
… and remember that Raku is not food safe and for decoration only, it is also porous and will not hold water reliably. Colors can still change and develop over time.
