Multicolour Raku Moon Jar
This hand thrown moon jar is a ‘one of a kind’ unique and decorative piece. Created on the wheel using a crank raku body.
Generous full bodied form with a narrow turned foot-ring base to accentuate the body of the piece.
Glazes are built up in layers with a combination of pouring and dipping to achieve the finish.
This particular piece is glazed with a multicolour raku glaze applied in layers. Fired in a fibre gas kiln to 1000⁰C then taken out glowing red hot with raku tongs and placed in a dustbin with saw dust and other combustible materials to encourage the raku finish in the glaze.
NOT Ovenproof, dishwasher or microwave safe. Still a porous body due to the nature of the firing so water will seap through.
Moon Jar Dimensions (mm):
125 X 110 X 110
‘Moon Jars’ date back to the early 16th century made traditionally in white porcelain during the Joseon Dynasty. It is from this era in Korea and the Minoan Civilisation in Crete and the beautiful Pithoi traditional Jars I draw my inspiration.
* Each piece is uniquely hand crafted and therefore will be slight variations in the design from piece to piece
