Quick Overview

4.5"x9" Hand Burnished Raku Ikebana Vase. I have looked far and wide to find a Artist to custom design Raku pottery for Ikebana and display. I am happy to say that I have found one and she has taken the Raku process to its highest degree. The process of Naked Raku is prior to bisque firing, each piece is burnished by rubbing a smooth stone over the surfac to develop the basis of a satin smooth finish. After she bisque fires the burnished piece , she fires it again in a kiln -like container fueled with sawdust. The sawdust is ignited and left to burn for one to two days. The direct contact of the fire and smoke creates unique designs. The introduction of various organic and inorganic materials produces the random flashing of color. When the piece is cooled it is washed and burnished again with wax to creat the warm satin finish. The finished variations are endless, some results look like metal, some wood, others resemble stone or marble. Certain color flashings are more difficult to achieve making them highly desirable. This process, where our artist has some control over the results and nature does the rest, has opened up creative avenues to her that continue to inspire her today. These are one of a kind pieces crafted by our artist. Raku bisque is some what porous we recommend cup Kenzens for your Ikebana arrangment. 06raku16
