Christoph Zange Black Raku Cermonial Tea Bowl and Cover Storage Vessel
Christoph Zange : Black Raku, ceremonal tea bowl & cover or storage vessel
Raku tea bowls are made by moulding pinching, sculpting by hand; glazing by brush and firing in a muffle kiln fuelled by charcoal removing them from the hot kiln so they cool extremely quickly creating unique colours and patterns. The traditional Raku process is believed to reflect enlightened life, as the firing process is daring and the pottery is derived from the earth The different textures, colours and surfaces of this tea bowl demonstrate the excitement and immediacy of Raku. The process demands skill from the artist who removes the piece from a red-hot kiln requiring physicality and intuition as there is a creative unpredictability to Raku, which is influenced by the fire. This tea bowl evokes a beautiful organic feel of ancient landscape with a soft palette and numerous different textures. It captures the spirit of the earth and the artist has used masterful skill and techniques to create a wonderful vessel. Christoph Zange won The Walter Gebauer Ceramic Award for 'The Drinking Vessel' in 2006. Pricing £2,000
