Squared, opaque raku bottle
Squared, opaque raku bottle, Italian handmade pottery
The squared raku ceramic bottle, with a modern and contemporary design, was hand-shaped by ceramist Master Giuseppe Liberati using semi-refractory clay and a raku technique typical finishing. Each phase of the making of the raku ceramic bottle, from moulding to decoration, follows the best artisanal tradition of Italian ceramic making.
This 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 raku ceramic making technique together with the polished shape of the bottle make this artefact a refined design object with a great artistic depth. Unique piece, not reproducible.
