Completely unique these copper flash pots are made using a copper flash raku technique.
The flash is the part that creates the cool rainbow of markings, you take the pot out the kiln at 960 degrees and put it in a reduction (no oxygen) environment which for meeee is a pile of sawdust, then you re expose the pot to air (a flash of air) - as the flame licks across the matt glaze a magical (chemical) reaction takes place and deposits minerals in a spectrum of colours like a peacocks feather. For me they are like rainbows stored inside a magical pebble or artefact.
Everyone is completely different and totally unique. I make them small so that they are like little treasures...

(They are a matt glaze so don’t polish these beauties as the glaze will tarnish.)
