Raku

This is the last of my pottery for a while...

Raku firing does amazing things to the glazes. I hadn't done a raku firing before this class and now I wish I had. I know I'll definitely be doing a lot more raku in the future.

The shape of this vase was an absolute accident. I think that the clay got a little too dry when I was shaping it on the wheel and it started to twist. Rather than scrapping the whole thing, I kept it because even though it was an accident, it was different than anything I had ever made before
.


This little round pot turned out way better than I ever could have imagined. Half of it is a metallic coppery-red and the other half is a marbled white and yellow with flecks of copper.
