This listing is for one airplant vase.
The vase has been raku fired to give it the rich color. This small vase stands just about 3” tall and is 4.75” at its widest point. The piece was hand made on the potters wheel by Lindsey from a raku clay with dots added to give the appearance of a sea urchin.
After the initial firing, the piece was then raku fired with a white crackle glaze. The raku process leaves each piece with a unique surface. 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 the colors change leaving black lines on the piece as carbon gets trapped on the surface as the glaze cools.
But, wait, you already have an airplant needing a special container?! No problem, I will send it along sans airplant- just be sure to leave a note upon purchase. Please note that there are a few available for sale- they are not identical to this photo, but are very similar. If you would like to see an image of the vase you will receive, please convo me before purchase and I will send one off to you. Thank you for looking!
