Some Raku, Good, Bad and Ugly






The title says it all. I am happy with all of the results except the plate, it has spectacular color but very bad design in the placement of the glaze. The pink/black pot was burnished, coated with slip, a thin layer of glaze over the slip and raku fired. The slip cracked off revealing the pattern underneath. It's naked raku because no glaze remains on the pot.


I will work in the yard today. It has huge potential; if only it would remain in place once "fixed". I like a nice yard but I am not a gardener; the joy some feel from yard work escapes me...

Thank you Angela, we can be brutal with ourselves sometimes. Maybe it will grow on me!

I like the plate too! The design is very graphic and the colors are great.
