A beautiful hand crafted Raku Rock fish by Ed Oldfield of Powell Rvier, B.C. Length 12 inches. Copper wire attached at rear so that the piece may be wall mounted.
Raku pottery is created with a specific ceramic firing process that uses both fire and smoke to create unique patterns and designs. With raku pottery, the piece is first bisque fired. Then, it is glazed and undergoes a raku firing process. The raku firing process requires a special raku kiln that is fueled by propane and reaches temperatures of about 1800°F (about 982°C). In order to complete the firing process, the raku pottery must remain in the kiln for approximately 30 minutes.
