All RAKU pots and vessels ARE NOT FOOD SAFE and the clay is very porous, so it will leak. If you have a vase that you want to put cut flowers and water in, line it with plastic first. They are strictly to be viewed and collect dust. Also never leave them in the sunlight or the glorious colours will fade. Over time, oxidation takes place and the colours will become dull, unless the potter has treated them with a clear wax.
Crackle Raku by Eric Stearns "My work concentrates on precision vessels whose exterior forms have been mathematically pierced to create an interest to the interior. Attracting the viewer’s gaze and sense of touch through the ever-changing relationship between light and dark, solid and permeable, smooth and rough, these vessels offer spiritual illumination through contemplation."
