Meet Robert Leuallen; the Raku ‘Firemeister’ of Raku by Shekinah Clay! When Shekinah Clay was first launched, Robert had a regular 9-5 job and he would help me with travel and Juried Art Shows on the weekends. The business grew to the point where it allowed him to step out of the 9-5 so we could travel more extensively with the business.
I trained him initially in the raku firing process and it wasn’t long before he perfected the process to the point you now see on the pieces! Robert Leuallen, raku ‘firemeister’ as I affectionately call him, runs a slick raku firing process! Many kudos to him for his expertise in raku firing AND for his wonderful teamwork in the entire business of all that Shekinah Clay is!
