    Bud vase, £40

    Lovely little raku fired bud vase, finished with an iridescent copper glaze which has flashes of turquoise and green.  This piece was hand thrown on the wheel from stoneware clay and raku fired which gives this beautiful metallic finish. 10cm high.

    All my pieces are unique both by design and by the nature of the raku firing process. Due to the low firing temperature this piece is not water or frost resistant and is not food safe. However it has been sealed on the inside with an acrylic sealer so that it can be used as a flower vase if you wish.
