friday night raku


This friday June 20th I will be hosting a live raku demonstration for the Allentown Art Guild. For more information check out the website www.allentownartguild.org...Some more new work below...this one is now up on my etsy shop! This vase is white crackle on top with a beautiful copper cobalt on the bottom...one side of the vase that received a heavier reduction has much more copper, but the other side has the cobalt...pretty cool.

new work: raku tea bowls





I love the combination of a white crackle with the copper matt glazes...this little tea bowl, has the most beautiful center. It is now up for sale in my etsy store...much more to come. I am starting to experiment with a new raku recipe for a rich cobalt/copper flashing glaze, so I will put those up in the next few days....We have been firing up the raku kiln often on these nice spring evenings as it is my favorite weather to raku...it gives you a perfect reason to just sit outside and enjoy the air.
