handmade ceramic Raku fishing boat

Beautiful and quirky handmade ceramic Raku fishing trawler with stained wood & metal wire mast.

Size: 11cm(H) x 8cm(W) x 4cm(D) Approximately. 
Please note: each piece is handmade so sizes may vary slightly.

Raku is a traditional Japanese technique. A rustic if somewhat precarious technique using all of nature’s elements, earth, air, fire and water.
Process: The work is fired to a high temperature of almost 1000c in a gas fired kiln. It is then removed whilst still very hot and plunged into sawdust. The pieces catch fire and the carbon from the smoke infiltrates the cracks in the glaze. The pieces are then left to cool and then scrubbed clean with water. The result is a finish that is both unpredictable and beautiful.
