Hug vase S


Introducing the Hug vase: a decorative vase that embraces whatever you place inside, whether it’s a vibrant bouquet of flowers or a set of cooking utensils. Crafted using the traditional Raku firing process, each Hug vase undergoes a journey of transformation.

First, the vase is removed from the kiln at temperatures nearing 1,000 degrees, only to be swiftly cooled in open air. This rapid temperature change causes the glaze to crack, resulting in the distinctive crackle effect that adds character to each piece. Next, the vase is carefully placed into a smoke chamber filled with wood chips, where flames dance around the object, engulfing it in heat. The smoke from the burning wood chips interacts with the unglazed clay, causing it to blacken and develop a unique, charred appearance. With its ability to cradle and accentuate anything placed within its embrace, the Hug vase is not just a decorative piece, but a statement of artistry and craftsmanship. Whether adorning your home or serving as a thoughtful gift, each Hug vase tells a story of tradition, transformation, and beauty.

As a result of the temperature shock, a crack has formed on the base of the vase. Due to the intensity of the Raku firing process, cracks are not uncommon. It’s important to note that this occurrence does not diminish the functionality of the vase.
