There is no glaze on this 6" beautifully marbled raku vase with a black top. This is why this technique is called naked raku. Hand thrown on the pottery wheel, this feet on this vase was then altered to show the movement of the the once wet clay. A fine clay was then applyed and then burnished very smooth.
The marbled raku pottery design is from a clay slip resist and smoke fired raku process called naked raku. A clay slip is fired over top of these pots and as it cracks off, the smoke colors the clay body black through the cracks. A truly unique marbled design and pottery process that could never be duplicated. The marbled naked raku pottery vase is then burnished a buffed again to be very smooth and soft.
As with all raku pottery, it is not recomended to hold water for long periods of time.
This naked raku vase, like everything here in our shop has been handmade by husband and wife potters JR and Kristen Page in Burnsville North Carolina.
