Leaving Marks

The flames of raku leave their lasting tribute on the pottery,
capturing but a moment
of the life of the fire.

Once the lid is placed on the reduction bin, the fire slowly consumes
the last of the oxygen,

but in this piece,
it’s memory lives on.

like us, The marks become a part – and feature – of the story of the vase.
