Inspired by the randomness of flames, this dramatic vase captures the beauty of fire in ceramic form. Soft, rounded sides with a slightly uneven rim create an organic feel, and a glossy translucent glaze brings added luster to brightly colored body. The copper based glaze has flashes of metal across the reddish brown glaze, with areas creating a vivid reflective surface. What's most special about the glaze is it has actual copper mixed in, and over time the metal reacts with the air, developing greenish hints over time. It's truly a living, changing work of art!
This vase is created with a raku technique, so it is more delicate than functional ceramics. Raku is special in that the interior is not 100% sealed, so it is not ideal for holding water! Perfect for displaying on its own as a piece of art, or adorned with flowers for visual interest.
These pieces are made, not manufactured, making each piece unique,just like you.
