Raku Domino set
Each set is unique as it is individually handmade and the results of firing, naturally, vary. I use Raku clay to create the shape of each piece and then use a template stamp to produce a consistent impression for the dots.
Step to create each piece:
– Create the shape
– Stamp the dots
– Stamp the separation line
– Smooth all surfaces
After this process the pieces are fired in an electric kiln.
All pieces are decorated with Raku transparent glaze.
At this stage the pieces are fired in a Raku kiln which gives them the fascinating and unique appearance.
Each piece measures approximately 50mm by 25mm.
The pieces are cleaned and put inside a 170 mm x 50mm x 50mm handmade oak box, with instructions on how to play inside. The boxes are made Sussex by Colin Irvine (Decorative Craftwork).
The whole creative process takes around 7-10 days from start to finish.
|Dimensions||19 × 7 × 7 cm|
The pieces are not suitable for outdoor.
It is recommended to gently wipe the surface with a cloth to remove dust and polish the pieces with liquid wax to guarantee a shiny result.
Raku is low fired so it is really fragile.
I am an Italian artist who was born in a historical town called Urbino. I’ve always played with clay since I was a child and I decided to use this particular material to express my creativity.
I have thought to create a series of artistic games using an unusual material like ceramic to increase the value of the table games in a generation of digital games.
My table games are really basic and suitable for all ages. they can be used like sculptures only or as proper games.
The combination of the concept and the material creates something unique, which cannot be duplicated.
