Burnished by the flame – three raku vases

December 8, 2011 § 2 Comments

These vases have been up on the bookshelves for more than a year and I’d forgotten about them until spring-cleaning! I made them in Bali, and carried them back with something like 25kgs of excess baggage. They were part of a precious cargo, none of which I’ve sold (some I gave away, and some broke)… until now.

Mysterious free-spirited lashings of copper, gold, orange and green are captured on the surface of these organic bodies. Two have been dented and pressed after forming on the wheel for asymmetric interest. One even has a little scratch where a bird perched while it was drying! These vases would look beautiful in bright surroundings. The white of the background really shows them off. The tallest vase measures 24 cm high, with the shortest at 13.5 high. Note that over time, the black parts may fade, especially if exposed to sunlight.
