Janie Kidston: Natural RAKU Cup

Janie Kidston: Natural RAKU Cup


Ceramic beaker fired in a RAKU kiln, hand made by ceramicist Janie Kinston.

RAKU is a low firing method inspired by the traditional Japanese RAKU firing. The process involves removing the pottery from the kiln while at bright red heat and subjecting it to post-firing reduction (or smoking) by placing it in containers of combustible materials, which blackens raw clay and causes crazing in the glaze surface. Made in the tradition of the Oriental tea bowl, this bowl is both functional and decorative.

Flowers can be arranged with out without the aid of a metal pin holder or flower frog inside, which are perfect for arranging wild flowers and blooms picked from the garden. The use of the frogs allow us to celebrate the space between each flower as much as the flower itself, playing to the JamJar aesthetic of simple and unadorned. 

We only have one of each of Janie’s exquisite vessels, each one is made by hand in South London.

Whilst these ceramics are perfect for flowers, they are not food safe.

Dimensions: H 13.5cm x W 6cm
