This large raku pottery sculpture was created using the raku firing process. This one-of-a-kind, dynamic piece features reflective properties typical of my signature “space rock” glaze. These special finishes and vibrant colors make this a uniquely decorative piece for any entranceway and is a sure conversation starter. This is part of a series of raku pottery sculpture that I developed using my own underglazes and glaze recipes which were either sprayed, painted or poured on. Creating my own glaze recipes makes the work more personal and more intimate.
Using copper, silver, cobalt and chrome in my glazes gives my raku pottery the most abundant features. When these metals melt in the firing, they leave some dramatic results. I may also use the glazes to strengthen the underlying design or texture of my raku pottery. The colors of the glaze and the crackle depend on the amount of reduction allowed during the raku firing and cooling.
