Raku Copper Mask by ceramic artist Julian Smith. This is a totally unique piece of wall art and would make a wonderful gift for yourself or someone special!

Julian Fullerton Smith has been working with clay for well over 30 years. After training in Scotland and Wales, he moved to Ireland in 1995. Initially he lived in Galway but soon discovered Kinsale, and established his own studio there in 1996.

Julian has established himself as one of Ireland’s foremost Raku artists. Raku is a technique originating in Japan in the sixteenth century, in which work is rapidly fired and removed from the kiln when glowing red-hot. The piece is then placed in a container with combustible materials creating striking colours using metallic oxides. The charm of Raku lies in its use of primitive materials which nevertheless can produce highly sophisticated results.
