A series of 8 unique three-legged ceramic vessels, fired in the high-energy raku technique. Raku ware uses the chemistry of metallic glazes and the reduction process and results in entirely unique surface finishes. These dishes can be used for storing small items, or as decorative pieces. A mix of lidded and unlidded pots. Due to the nature of raku, these pieces are not food safe.
