Description

Elte’s collection of pieces by Re Jin Lee explore this daring and unpredictable ancient Japanese technique of Raku. Pieces are prepared with glazes special to the raku process. Instead of a controlled, electric kiln, raku requires a fuel-burning kiln -a much faster heating using fire. Pulled from the kiln red-hot, pieces are quickly placed in combustible materials which burst into flames upon contact. It is then smothered with a container to deprive the set up of oxygen, and immediately cooled down.

A number of variations on this process of fire, quick temperature change, and oxygen deprivation leads to endless variations in colours and surface effects. Results can never be repeated; each piece is truly an original.
