It is manufactured in a low-shot way called raku, which originated in Japan during the 16th century. The glass parts are burned to about 1000 c in a wood or gas oven. Then it is removed hot red and cooled quickly.This process generates small hair cracks in the so-called crackling glaze that will become dark after smoking in. Sawdust and lend pottery its typical optics. Because of the random controlled raku shooting process, unique surfaces can be generated. Each object is not reproducible and in its individuality a unique distinctive. Note for the use of raku ceramics. Liquids can be filled for a few hours, but after a while a little moisture could spread to the surface of the ceramic. It is possible to add a small container inside to hold the water. Generally, I recommend washing by hand, because the dishwasher salts could affect the raku ceramics along. Because of the low-temperature cooking process, raku ceramics are not shock-resistant or frost resistant, nor are they suitable.
