This raku ceramic, created in one of our partner workshops in South Africa, is delivered with a certificate of authenticity.



This “Picasso Baliste” fish, created with an adaptation of traditional “RAKU” methods, is still very appreciated for the uniqueness that it reveals through rapid double cooking at low temperatures.


During the second firing, the ceramic comes out incandescent from the oven at 1000 °, cracks during thermal shock, then ignites on contact with the sawdust in which it is immersed. The smoke then seeps through the cracks in the enamel, and the unglazed parts become carbonaceous. The ceramic is then carefully brushed to show off all its beauty.
