Product Description

Beautiful porcelain is created on the potters wheel,burnished and bisque fired. The pottery is then fired again in an outdoor raku kiln to about 1850. The pot is removed red hot and placed carefully in an insulated container to cool for a few minutes. The artist then deftly applies horse hair to the extremely hot pot. The hair instantly burns into the surface of the pot and creates a unique design. Once cool enough to handle, it is returned to the studio for a hand buffed wax finish.
