This listing is for airplant container.
3.5” w x 2.75" h.
The planter was handmade on the potters wheel. After the initial firing, the piece was then raku fired with white crackle glaze painted in a spotted pattern.
The raku process is responsible for highlighting the black crackle lines on the white polka dots. While the piece was red hot, it was removed from the kiln and placed in a combustion chamber with leaves, newsprint, hay and sawdust where it ignites. After 30-60 seconds, a lid is placed on the chamber where the flames are starved for oxygen. It is in this moment where the magic happens and carbon gets trapped in the glaze as it is cooling to leave the black lines in the glaze.
Winter SHIPPING Notice- due to the cold temperatures, if you wish to have an airplant included in your order, it is advisable to purchase an additional UNI-Heat heat pack that will be included in your box for shipment. If picking up at the studio, the heat pack is not necessary.
