Raku has two types of finishing methods, smoking and/or flaming. This piece has both. The interior and rim were smoked; the matte glaze on the sides was flamed. The controlled flames lick the glaze making a variety of color. I added crisscrossed texture and loops to this vessel catching the shiny glaze, giving it an unusual dimension. This exciting piece will draw comments from your friends.
It stands 10.5" tall, with a 6.5" width x 7.75 at loops, (not handles). Picture show both sides.
