Raku Gold Turquoise In A Jug was handmade on the pottery wheel and fired under high temperatures with a glaze. I took it out of the kiln at extremely high temperature and put it into a reduction chamber, to get the amazing play of colors. Crackles that are penetrated by the smoke bring out these interesting surface of texture, color, crackles and natural material.
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.
Gold, turquoise and maroon red all play together and bring out the translucent colors of the rainbow. This piece might speaks to you reflecting the shining light within or you could attract more of it through bringing more radiance and beauty into your home.
… 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.
