Copper Raku Vase


The raku technique is to remove the pot from the kiln at the

maturation temperature of the glaze (950*C) and placing it in a

container with combustible material like sawdust, newspaper, etc…

which will ignite  and the closed container will produce the

reduction. The carbone trapped in the glaze and the body of the clay

and the dramatic thermal shock will  cause a pattern of cracking.
