*RAKU CRACKLE* hand crafted ceramic pendant
handmade - one of a kind
Hours after I pulled these out of my Raku gas kiln, there was a fire which burned down my workshop with this particular kiln, my electric kiln, glazes etc all destroyed. Therefore these Raku Crackle pendants are the very last pieces I made and fired - until I can rebuild and set myself up again in the next 6-12 months. These pendants are very special to me, and are an important symbol of my last 3.5yrs of making ceramics from home, and now the closing of that chapter before a new one begins. It may be several years before I have a Raku kiln again. - Lee-Anne
This piece was handmade with Stoneware clay and a pattern imprinted into the clay using various tools and impressions. It has been kiln fired at bisque, and then Raku fired in my Raku gas kiln to 1000*C, before being plunged into combustible organic materials to create a crackling effect on the glazed area and a blackened effect on the unglazed areas (back) - as per usual with this sort of technique (Raku).
It is attached to the cord using sturdy stainless steel jump rings..
Ceramics are breakable, however this piece is strong and unless dropped hard or smashed, it will stay intact.
Hung on a black or white plaited synthetic leather cord of 3mm with clasp, adjusts to 49cm.
