Few people were working with raku in Britain during the late 1970s when Martin Smith graduated from the Royal College of Art and was producing work of this type. The geometric design was achieved by masking certain areas with tape before applying a white glaze. The vessel's precise, sharply defined appearance is quite different to the random qualities traditionally associated with raku.He stopped throwing raku in 1978, turning to red earthenware and moulding techniques.

On loan from The Keatley Trust.
