Raku fired Ceramic Algorythm Abstract sculpture. Raku is a traditional Japanese firing technique, hand molded pottery is removed from the hot kiln and is allowed to cool in the open air or in a container filled with combustible material. This results in crackle glaze structure, black surfaces where clay has been exposed to smoke. Color transitions where heat reduction of elementals such as copper change from bronze, red, blue and green. The result of Raku firing is irregular, rustic, producing `one of a kind`, expressing the notion of `wabi-sabi` a Japanese aesthetic.
A `strange attractor`, is a computational algorithm known as a fractal, which can be visualized both 2D and 3D. Although seemingly chaotic and random, `strange attractors`, inherit a larger cosmic order. The algorithm has been used by science in quantum mechanics studying how classical mechanics works in relation to chaotic systems.
