    Hi,

    just bought this beautiful vase at auction (together with 4 matching pieces).
    LOVE the rough, smoothe and drip glaze texture of this pottery piece.
    Found out today this is by Gogan Plasket.
    LOVE my new vase!

      FWIW, not sure it’s what I’d consider Raku.

      You could try a pencil and tissue paper rubbing of the mark to see if it’s readable. Also, dusting the mark with powdered sugar might enhance contrast and make it readable enough to google the artist name.

      I'll try that, thanks!!!

      art.pottery, I thought the same thing....I have not seen raku pottery look like this, but I am not a pro.

      No, it's not raku. American raku, or post-firing reduction, is a firing technique that turns the clay body black, as a result of a chemical reaction from oxygen being blocked from reaching the pottery. Japanese Raku is named for the originating Raku family, and is associated with creating ware for the tea ceremony. Two entirely different types of pottery.

      Paul Soldner, the American potter and instructor who invented the process of American raku on the 1960s, regretted that it was being referred to as "raku" and attempted to get people to use another term, without much results.

      In any event. this is neither Japanese or American raku. It's studio pottery, and, unless made by someone fairly well-known, probably not worth the effort to identify the potter, if it's even possible.

      I think that glaze is called “drip glaze”...it “runs” during the firing process.

      Thanks for all of your comments!!
      A friend helped me today and made out enough of the name to look him/her up online......turns out this vase is by Gogan Plasket and is indeed a studio art pottery vase.
      Thanks again for your input......mystery solved!
