This month's pot features previous glazes of the month:  Blue MoonLime Green and Sassy Fat White/Silver Slither, in addition to this month's Midnight Blue.  

This raku pottery piece was developed using the American raku pottery process. It was first built by hand on the potter’s wheel before being fired in the kiln .  The brilliant greens, dark purples and blues were created using the Forbes Midnight Blue Glaze. It is perfect as a stand alone entrance piece and does well in any naturally lit room. A truly wonderful addition to any pottery collection.

These unique textures were made from a mix of homemade glazes during the raku firing process. The glazes were painted, sprayed and poured until I was pleased with the final result. The colors of the glaze and the crackle are formed based on the amount of oxygen I allow during the raku firing and cooling.  As oxygen is reduced, the reaction causes the oxygen to be pulled from the glazes, leaving behind a brilliant mix of beautifully colored raku pottery.  The results are always serendipitous and each raku pottery piece I pull from the container is truly one of a kind!
