This is a pretty little ceramic Raku pinch pot. The glaze has been reduced after firing to oxidise. It could be used for storing rings by the sink, holding cufflinks or putting hair slides in for example.

Raku reduction firing is 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 gives the coppery sheen to the surface of the glaze.

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: 5x6cm.

Glazes: Spectrum Raku Sunspot glaze and Bath Potters Supplies clear Raku glaze over white slip.
