The Raku Colorful Jug 3 was 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.
I was so reminded of colors of the rainbow with this jug. And perhaps that is what you resonate with. The colors of the rainbow, the translucency. This piece will be great in any home! It will bring out the fiery part of you if you turn it one way. And if you turn it the other way it has some cooler colors to bring you some tranquility.
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.
