Like any skill, raku pottery takes learning and practice
Which means taking a look at old work and learning more about what I like and do not. This helps me to further define my artistic practice.
The sun is out this morning (with plans for a bisque firing!), so before getting set up I was taking a look at this vase called Madame Pele’s Flow and taking a few pictures to share with you 🙂
In this piece, I love how the colours almost look like a volcano.
‘Madame Pele’s Flow’ tells the tale of a sometimes beautiful goddess who was right at home in the flames of raku. Not only could she sometimes appear as a beautiful woman, but also a white dog, even an old woman, but also a lava flow.
