One of the things that I love about pottery is the magic of raku.
It is a real game changer. The kinds of effects you can get from this process are unlike those you can get from conventional firing techniques. You can learn more about how we fire our raku pottery here!
As an added bonus, the effects are unique and one of a kind to each piece. While you may be able to reproduce a general overall effect, you can not reproduce identical pieces. You can click on any of the titles of these raku pottery vases for more information
The patterns of the cracking on the glaze is very magical and intrigues me.
I find that using certain reduction materials can cause some very interesting multi-coloured textural effects.
This vase has many things going on! Hues of red, purple and blue that almost give this vase a landscape quality!
