Can you preserve fire? Yes! And you can see it right here on the surface of this raku vase.  It might look like there are several glazes on this vase, butno! In a raku firing, you can often see the pattern of the flames in the glaze, even more so on the back of this vase than on the front. It is the contact with the flames that  alters the look of the glaze. The highly metallic copper glaze contrasts beautifully with the unglazed portions that have absorbed the carbon from burning organic matter in the raku firing. The rough edges, interesting contrasts, and the variations in the glaze make this a truly unique vase.

As all raku pottery, this vase is not waterproof.  It is decorative only.  Should you want to add flowers, consider using dried flowers. Alternatively, you can put the flower stems and water into a ziploc bag, zip it as closed as possible, and put the bag into the vase.

This piece is about 13" tall.
