This Globe Vase is a round, capacious piece produced using the Raku technique, resulting in a beautiful unpredictable finish. This vase would be the perfect centerpiece or an addition to a growing collection of unique art in a home.Obvara is a firing technique similar to the Raku technique, but the difference is that the vase gets dunked into a special Obvara mixture and then into water. This results in wonderful unpredictable patterns that look almost like animal prints or wood all around the vase. This technique originated from Eastern Europe and is also said to give an antique-like look to a ceramic piece.
