Incense stick holders

Cut from slabs of grogged clay and embellished with careful incisions made by wooden tools, small rocks and Adriatic sea shells. Incense-stick holders have to be dried flat under a heavy load for 10 days. After the edges have been sanded and made smooth holders are fired in ceramic kiln in temperatures reaching almost thousand degrees centigrades. Following complete cooling they are  hand dipped in special raku glazes and finished in a raku kiln.

They are made in limited edition collections, but no two pieces are ever the same.

Incense stick not included.

Raku firing really is one of the most natural techniques that you can encounter in working with clay. In loose translation the word “raku” means contentment and enjoyment in happy accident..

Originally created for the Korean tea ceremony, and further developed in 16th century Japan.

In raku firing all of nature’s elements are used in the process – earth, fire, air and water and together they create an unpredictable and unique style .

The process of Raku firing differs from other firing methods because it requires the fast removal of the piece from the furnace at their maximum temperature. While red hot, the pieces can be reduced using smoke from flammable materials, or enhanced with alcohol, or decorated with horse/pet hair and feathers.

It is a rather dangerous, unpredictable and amazing process.
