Short story of “raku” technique
The raku technique was 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 uniqueness of this piece makes this artefact a unique design object with a high artistic depth. Unique piece, non-reproducible.
The raku ceramic centerpiece is an artefact with a high artistic value as well as an exclusive furnishing element. When purchasing, to the object there will be attached a Guarantee Certificate as a warranty of the craftsmanship of the product. The raku ceramic centerpiece is a unique piece and it is not reproducible.
