Kemuri [kə mu re]
Traditional Japanese Raku pottery achieves its unpredictable artistic style through smoke and fire. Glazes are applied through spraying, brushing or sponging, and water mists during the cooling process can influence the final colors in a surprising way. The Kemuri glass collection takes inspiration from these time-honored misting techniques. Like the glaze applications of some Raku ceramics, the result is a random, dappled finish that creates a soft, cloud-like effect. It's a modern twist, using a traditional art form on a fresh canvas—glass—in eight colors and three patterns.
Note on handcrafted material: Our hand-made process incorporates creases, wrinkles, waves, bubbles and other surface effects indicative of hand-made glass, all designed to capture light and enhance the final beauty of the project. Variation in color, shade, surface texture, size and minor edge irregularities (including occasional chipped sides/edges) are natural characteristics of all our products and should be expected. Samples and photos provided are representative, but may not indicate all variations of these characteristics.
