Raku Pottery – Exploring Textures

Welcome!

I once completed a raku pottery firing where I was hoping for some results with interesting textures. The kiln gods did not disappoint and here are a few of the results!

If you are interested in learning more about the process involved in making raku pottery, you can read more about it here.

I altered a few of the variables in the raku firing process to get these textured surfaces, and I am pleased with the results.

One of my favourite pieces from the firing, both in terms of form and finish, is this piece:

The brave blue and all the crackly goodness on this vase make me a very happy potter! You can check out more of our raku vases here.

Which vase or finish was your favourite?

  1. The textures are eccentric, outlandish!
    The first one is like a bit chubby women with beautiful skin—BEAUTIFUL!
    The second seem like a relaxing man on his rocking chair…or may be a penguin–I don’t know what you had in mind while making it– or just a beautiful flower vase– AND MUST SAY TEXTURE FINISH IS SO UNIQUE AND BLEDDED WITH LOVE IT SEEMS
    The third one seem like a thinner women. With again unique texture~~
    Beautiful~~ the color mingling is perfect in all ~~ esp. in second
    Do share other human like models–its so refreshing to look at the beautiful art
