This is a decorative ceramic Raku coil pot vase. The glaze has been reduced after firing to oxidise.

This is done in a process where the pot is removed from the kiln still glowing red hot and placed in a container filled with combustable materials. This is then sealed after they ignite. As the oxygen in the container is burned up and reduced the oxides from the glaze are drawn out to burn, depositing the metals on the surface of the glaze. This is what give the metallic sheen to the surface of the glaze in places. This piece has been fired 3 times.

Each vase is unique in its finish as well as its form. Compared to stoneware pottery and glazes Raku ware is more ephemeral, but kept dry out of direct sunlight should last some time.
Raku potterys function is decorative.

Approximate size: 21 x 13cm.

Glazes: Spectrum Raku Turquoise glaze and Bath Potters Supplies Wellow Yellow Raku glaze.
