I have a confession to make. I can be quite clumsy. Fortunately this usually happens when no one is looking!
I may have already mentioned that the raku firing process can be quite volatile and that not every vase survives.
Today I have decided to share with you, one of my beautiful accidents.
This was the largest vase I have yet to throw on the wheel so far, so I have tried to repair it for myself. Unfortunately when I pulled this piece out of reduction I placed it in the cooling water too soon.
What have I learned from all of this? Larger Pottery pieces need more time to cool! I won’t be forgetting that anytime soon. It will be a good way to practice more patience.
