This Raku vase, with its lusterous teal color with copper flashes, would look great as a beautiful conversation piece in any room of your house. It is 14 inches tall. Raku pottery is fired in a small kiln one piece at a time. It is removed red hot from the kiln and placed into a bed of sawdust. It is then covered tightly so it cannot burn freely. The interaction between the smoldering sawdust and the hot glaze produces the vivid, unique colors of Raku. Raku pottery is still porous and will not hold water. As with any piece of fine art, keep out of direct sunlight and clean with a damp cloth.
