(New) Shimmering Raku Sea Vase 4
9.5”W x 9”H
This elegantly crafted ceramic vase was developed using the raku pottery process and was thrown on the wheel and altered. The bright and reflective greens and reds were developed using my proprietary glazes, which in this case I call a “halo opal” surface. This vase has been water sealed with silicone, which makes it a perfect piece for flower arranging.
The metallics that I most often use in the glazes are copper, silver, cobalt and chrome. They melt in the firing and leave some spectacular results. I may also use the glazes to enhance the underlying design or texture of the piece. The colors of the glaze and the crackle are dependent on the amount of reduction allowed during the raku firing and cooling.
