OMW! These are gorgeous! They have a bronzy honeyed glow! I read your post on pit firing and can understand why you go through this process.
Thank you so much for your kind words Eugenia! Yes they do seem to have a honey glow to me too, and some of the pieces seem to have lots of depth to them.
I hope you are doing well and have a great weekend ahead!
Very nice work with this wonderful pit fired pottery!
Thanks so much Phil! I hope you have a great weekend ahead.
Thanks – same to you!
This is amazing! I used to work as a historical presenter, and sometimes I was in charge of presenting the pottery house at Greenfield Village. It gave me a deeper appreciation in what goes into pottery. 🙂
That is very interesting that you were able to have the opportunity to learn more about pottery and it’s history. Thanks so much for your kind comment. I hope you are well!
Oh my gosh, these are stunningly beautiful! I don’t suppose you have any coffee mugs for sale?
We do! Not pit fired as they would not hold liquid but you can see our mugs here: http://rakupottery.ca/mugs
Awesome! Thank you. I’ll check it out.
There are very few things that remain on my list of foundational experiences in life that have been with me donce the moment I first encountered them. The one that tops them all is the firing of a dragon kiln or hill kiln. Ever since encountering Bernard Leach at a talk he gave in the early 70’s I knew my future course was set. Alchemy in fact is so deeply it. Kudos. Fire and pits. It doesn’t get closer to our essence than that.
These are very cool, love them!
Thank you for taking the time to comment and your kind comment! I hope you have a great day!
