Clay & Metalic Oxide Glazes

21"L x 11"W x 38"H

Wheel thrown and hand built clay vessel. The Raku firing technique originated in 16th century Japan and was based on the idea of rapid heating and quick cooling of ceramic pieces. This technique, in combination with the metallic, colorful glazes, produces unique, multi-hued flame patterns on the surface of the piece.

BIO
Ed Risak studied at Northern Michigan University, where he received his BFA and his MAE. Each piece of Ed's work is a combination of throwing them on the potter’s wheel and using the slab technique to hand-build portions.

"The throw rings are evident with the color changes," Risak explains. "I want the pieces to look painterly."

Examples of Ed's work can be seen in the collections of the University of Tokyo, the Smithsonian Institution and the White House, as well as many museums, corporate and private collections.
