In the Raku series, Naxos has created an eclectic grouping of products with each design presented in the color that looks best. The final effect is a series of unique products, just like the Raku ware that inspired it. The surface texture mimics the random irregularities observed in the refractory clay used by ceramic artists. The glazes – particularly on the structured fields – play with light by contrasting reflective lustre glazes with a muted matte base. While this series is a collection of unique items, they are also designed to coordinate with each other, just as a set of Raku pottery would be made up of different but complementary pieces.
