This Salt & Pepper Holder was hand-sculpted by Polish ceramicist Ewelina S. using an old japanese technique called Raku. Raku is a process in which objects are taken from the kiln while still red hot and placed within a pile of combustible material such as hay, sawdust or paper to cool and smolder. Stunning effects, such as the crackling and the copper contrasts seen on this object are all achieved through this unique style of firing.
“My ceramics brought me to Slovakia … and it’s my home now”
Originally from Poland, Ewelina claims that her “favorite drug” is an old Japanese technique called Raku, which connects human hands with the force of elements.
