Raku poppy seed head pot

£100.00

The crackles in the glazed surface caused by rapid cooling of the pot are ┬áblackened by smoke from burning combustibles including sawdust and paper. The patterns in the unglazed smoked top were incised while the pot was still soft when it had just been thrown on the potter’s wheel.

This pot has been fired at a low temperature to maximise on the carbonised crackles and therefore is porous and not suitable for food or liquid use
