I have specialized in the raku firing process for more than 15 years and I love it today just as much (if not more) than when I was first captivated by raku! These two pieces featured here are but a small example of the fascination it holds for me. Both of these pieces have the same featured feather(s) and were glazed identically. If you’ve experienced raku firing, you automatically know how exciting that very last step is when you learn of the final coloration. Both pieces are beautiful while the coloration is totally different: the first has bright copper with alot of blue, the second has a gorgeous golden hue with more subtle coloration. It is just ONE of the reasons I enjoy this process so!
