Raku Pottery is derived from a 16th Century Method of Firing Pottery.
Some clay pieces are fired very quickly in a small kiln until the piece has reached 1400 degree For the Glaze is Molten.
Each piece is removed with tongs and placed in a bed of leaves Hay sawdust or some other combustibles and allowed to cool
Many unusual Patterns and colors come from the interplay between the Smoky Atmosphere and the rapid cooling creating a Metallic finish.
Another Finish using the Raku Technique that I have worked in is shown above.
The Piece is heated and then carefully sprayed, and just at the right time, I lovingly lay strands of donated Horse Hair where it instantly creates its own pattern.
There is a very nice collection of these home decor items that will make wonderful gifts or display piece in anyone’s home
One of the most unique Horse hair pieces is Halloween Pumpkins
