Ceramic Sculpture -Naked Raku

With the Naked Raku firing technique the glaze layer cracks off like an eggshell after the firing process, the surface left behind is smooth burnished clay bearing the patterns of the smoke that permeated through the glaze outer shell before it fell away, every piece is therefore completely unique.

Black Gold

Naked Raku vessel, approx 23 x 27 x 27cm

Inspired by a trip to Abu Dhabi, this sculptural vessel has a “well” sinking down into the body, during construction a ceramic umbilical cord was inserted into the vessel before the well section was attached, meaning that when this vessel is handled one can hear the sound of the cord sliding around, and can occasionally glimpse sections of it as it passes under the well hole.
