Measures 6.58" x 3.75"
Handmade by Chad Jerzak in Coon Rapids, Minnesota.
Chad Jerzak creates hand-thrown ceramic pieces with a variety of surfaces created through glaze and slips. These forms are brought to life through the American-style raku firing process. This method of firing involves removing the work from the kiln while it is red-hot and flash cooling it in a combination of reduction materials (like sawdust) and water. This process interacts with the metal-rich glazes to produce a wide variety of colors and effects. The results are always exciting, and sometimes frustrating as the pieces may not always survive this rigorous process.
