The Magic of Raku

One of the things that I love about pottery is the magic of raku.

The Alchemist’s Studio is a magical place!

Raku 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

Fractal Magic

The patterns of the cracking on the glaze is very magical and intrigues me.

Diana’s Hunt

I find that using certain reduction materials can cause some very interesting multi-coloured textural effects.

A Horse With No Name

This vase has many things going on!  Hues of red, purple and blue that almost give this vase a landscape quality!

  1. Diana’s hut is cute and horse, you could have named him- by colors her have — 1. golden, 2. red, 3. blue , so name can be Golreblu. How is this name for the horse ?
    I never liked cracks, but yes, eggs crack to give birth to hens…so it can be thought that way too…. Great work~
