Raku Decorative Rosé Sphere 11 is part of the New Collection and was handmade on the pottery wheel. I fired it 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 made Raku decorative Rosé Sphere 11 just for you! The glaze reminds me of a gentle rose or the light that sets over the Ganges River at the Taj Mahal. Through oxidation and reduction the glaze turns crackles and the colors develop. A wonderful symbolism for you. The symbolism of softness and gentleness. You are feeling attracted to this piece because you resonate with it. Maybe you feel softness on the inside, or you seek gentleness in your life.
I have been working on this new collection for weeks and I am so excited to present it. Raku is 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.
