Obvara bottle

Obvara bottle


These tactile little bottles are handcrafted in fine white raku clay and decorated using the Baltic-origin obvara raku process, which includes yeast and flour to create the incidental mottled markings.


They are perfect for those who enjoy collecting quirky and unique objects to display in their homes.


Each one has its own unique character with varying size, shape and colour hues - see approximate dimensions and pictures. Please note this finishing process is porous and these pieces should not be used for containing liquids.


Approx Width - 6.5cm 

Approx Height - 6cm

  • My pieces are created from my studio at 'The Base', in Berkshire. (Or from under the stairs of my home during Covid-19 lockdown!) They are crafted by hand on a potters' wheel or constructed using hand-rolled sheets of clay. I enjoy adding minimal oxide decoration to help highlight the marks and natural surface created during the making process.


    Once thrown or built, each piece is left to slightly dry, and then carefully refined with a range of tools. After a 'bisque-fire' oxides are applied with calligraphy brushes and sponges, then dipped in a clear glaze before a second firing. From beginning to end it can take at least a couple of weeks to complete a single object. Ceramics is an elemental labour of love turning mud and fire into unique pieces for your home.


    These pieces are handcrafted and in order to preserve them at their best I recommend washing by hand and not in the dishwasher.
