Raku That Always Glows

WB-1226 We urge you take time to get acquainted with Raku pottery and in particular, with one of Colorado’s top raku potters Marc Jenesel.  His work is rather unique because it “glows” with warmth and interest.  There are all kinds of raku pottery in the art world but none like this.

Whether an avid collector of pottery or not, if you love the feel and look of pottery, explore his collection.  This is a discovery you don’t want to miss. Marc and his wife Karen collaborate to create vessels with fiber for spectacular sculpture-like vessels.  Their collection of Raku vessels with textured glazes, shapes, and colors are head-turners and make great conversational pieces.  It is amazing what four hands, two sets of eyes and two creative minds can deliver together.  Each piece is exquisite work and the perfect accent for whatever you enjoy collecting.  You might even be moved to pick up a piece for a gift.

Tell us what you like about their pieces … the crackled textured glazes, the coppery shades of blue, violet and red that sparkle and glitter, or some other appealing feature?  Check online to see their combination pieces and more glow pots.

It is rare that a visitor walks through Hunter-Wolff Gallery without stopping to take a second look, touch the textured surface or feel the intricately woven art  by Karen Pierce and Marc Jenesel. These two talented artists, husband and wife, create some of the most discussed work at the gallery. Their work consists of beautifully glazed raku pottery and fiber, embellished with natural materials like gem stones, special coins, copper wire and hand-made copper charms that move and sway with the slightest breeze. The inside of the pottery, which serves as a base for the woven structures, is lined with copper leaf for an eye-catching glow.

It’s amazing what four hands, 20 fingers, and an imagination that pushes the envelope can do together. Residents of Colorado Springs and just minutes from the gallery, allows Hunter-Wolff Gallery to receive Karen and Marc’s best work without difficulty. Collectors love it too.

Consider adding unique accents like a Glow Pot or fiber art to your own collection. The glow pots are a must-have and will add a little beam of light to any dark corner. They glow with the lights on or off because of the copper leaf application on the interior of the Raku. Who needs candles to create a romantic mood or brighten up a poorly lit area?

Let us know what you think of our Raku vessels topped off with woven fiber such as seagrass, willow or date palm inflorescence and gem stones. We love hearing your comments.
