Perforated raku ceramic centrepiece
Perforated raku ceramic centrepiece, Italian modern pottery
Perforated raku ceramic centrepiece ceramic, hand-decorated. The perforated raku ceramic centerpiece, with a modern and contemporary design, is moulded, finished and decorated by hand by Master Giuseppe Liberati. Unique piece. Non reproducible.
The clay moulding to create the raku ceramic centrepiece was made by the hand, the creativity, the genius and technical skills of the Master and Artist Giuseppe, all these things allow him to manually create any shape. The openwork was made with regular circles placed symmetrically in three rows all along the centrepiece edge. The outer surface decoration was enriched with embossed lines which form a double band of symmetrical triangles. The particular colouring of the artwork is due to the raku technique, invented in Japan by an artisan named Chojiro.
The main difference between majolica (traditional ceramic) and raku is that for the first one the object slowly cools down, while for the second one the object is extracted by the oven still incandescent. Therefore, the oxygen reduction and the thermic shock allow to obtain, sometimes, unpredictable and unique chromatic effects with particular shades. The centrepiece outer surface has iridescent green shades, while in the inner part the main colouring is brown with metallic effects.
The perforated raku ceramic centrepiece was made in modern home design style and it is an artwork which reflects the trends of the contemporary Italian ceramic. When purchasing, to the object there will be attached a Guarantee Certificate as a warranty of the craftsmanship of the product.
