Beautiful light green vase made with lava technique.

Lava technique ceramics is a type of pottery that uses a unique process to create a distinctive textured surface resembling the rough, porous texture of lava rock. This technique involves adding granular substances such as pumice or volcanic ash to the clay mixture used to create the pottery. During the firing process, the granular substances burn away, leaving behind tiny air pockets in the surface of the ceramic that create the characteristic textured appearance.

The lava technique can be applied to a variety of ceramic forms, including vases, bowls, plates, and sculptures. The finished pieces can range in color from earthy tones to vibrant hues, and may be glazed or left unglazed to enhance the natural texture of the surface.

The use of the lava technique in ceramics has a long history, with examples of this style of pottery dating back to ancient cultures such as the Minoans in Crete and the Etruscans in Italy. In modern times, the lava technique has been used by a number of ceramic artists and studios around the world.
