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.

Your work is stunning! I love the contrast between the white crackle and the interior. Beautiful!

Did you build your own raku kiln? If so, did you find plans somewhere, or did you make your own design?

I love these bowls too, they are so subtle for raku, very nice.
