This is obviously one of the BIGGER Birkim's that you can get!

This bag was completely covered in Sunspot glaze, giving it hues of coppers, reds and browns. There are also pops of metallics throughout.

The Process:

Raku pieces are made, dried, bisque fired before they are then glazed with special raku glazes. They are placed inside a raku kiln, outside and heated with gas. Once they have reached around 1000oc, they are removed and placed inside metal bins, filled with paper and sawdust. This catches fire and lids are placed on top and the bins are covered with water. After around 10minutes, we open the bins and cool down the items inside.

It's complete luck and praying to the kiln gods! This makes them specialist ceramics, completely unique and collector's items.
