Naked Raku

A perfect exposition of how naked Raku works with a hard boiled egg lightly tapped to craze the shell before steeping in Soya Sauce, Black Tea and Spices, called Tea Leaf Eggs.

When peeled the pattern appears in the same way as chipping the glaze from a naked Raku pot after smoke has penetrated the crazing. Yet again the food and clay share a symmetry.
