This piece is a creation of Marie-Christine Lété, a Montreal ceramist. Passionate about sculpture, she also produces small series of pieces made on the wheel and fired in raku. Mainly decorative, but also utilitarian, for the time of a meal, they are neither dishwasher nor microwave safe.
Raku, which means joy and pleasure in Japanese, is intimately linked to Zen philosophy and the tea ceremony. This technique, although controlled, gives a unique result for each piece, with the most exciting random effects.
