Glazed Raku in White with Reds and Yellow

Ceramic Sculpture

Created by Frank Nemick
This ceramic sculpture is equally at home on the floor or a table. It is composed of two separate glazed and raku fired elements. The bold colors are permanent and integral to the piece.

Western raku is based on the ancient Japanese raku method of ceramic firing. This method entails taking the piece out of a red hot kiln, and then putting it into a metal bin full of combustibles (Nemick uses pine needles), where it sits for thirty minutes or so absorbing smoke into any bare clay surfaces, and also into any cracks present in the glaze. This is what gives them their dark lines and surfaces.

Each element is filled with a structural rigid foam that is not visible once assembled. Easy assembly required; the top fits securely into the bottom piece.
