This is an amazing piece from a mold that was Raku-fired using a pine needle reduction technique. As a result, the blues are to die for and the height and silhouette add to the beauty of the work. The blues vary from the reduction process and you even get a copper and purple in some spots. The bronze/gold option is stunning. It's opulescent glaze is shiny without being too overpowering. To make the colors not fade, keep it out of direct sun. It measures 8 1/2 inches high and 3 inches wide at the belly. Not dishwasher safe.
