Inspired by a traditional Japanese pottery technique that dates back to the 1500s, Raku ware is an age-old form of low-fired pottery. Featuring a ceramic base with the same intricate crackle glaze, Raku serves as a reminder of the unique beauty that comes with artisanal production methods.
To enable its portable design, Raku is equipped with a magnetic USB cable, rechargeable battery and four-step touch dimmer, allowing light intensity to be altered depending on the desired mood.
