Now you can win a beautiful raku ceramic house by danish ceramist Dina Pedersen.
Dina Pedersen makes the finest small raku ceramic houses and every single one of them are very important to her, as they are images of people in her life or things she had experienced personally. Sometimes she feels she is in the lighthouse where the light clearly lights her path. And sometimes she is in a house with a long long staircase, the antennas sticking out and no windows because she feeling lonely or blue.
When she works with the houses, it is her way of making it visible, that she is not forced to live in one mental house. She can decide to live in a house with lots of space, odd angles and room for everyone just as they are. It is her hope, that people can recognise themselves in her houses and maybe find one, that call to be part of their home or a home by someone they love.
The raku technique is an old Japanese burn method where the clay is burned in a raku barrel or selfmade oven. The hot items are placed in a pot with sawdust. This proces is called reducing and gives the ceramic the characteristic black colour and cracks.
“I am really fascinated by the proces and have had a lot of thoughts about the colours and the final result, but the raku burn is out of my control. I never really know how it will look, and for me it is a good practise for a perfectionist as myself to loose control,” Dina smiles.
Dina is now giving away one of her beautiful raku ceramic houses to NOORVERKs followers on Facebook and Instagram.
