(New) Blue Beauty #1
9.5"H x 9"W
This brilliant ceramic bowl was created on the potter's wheel and transformed. The striking blue and gold colors and the crackle are dependent on the amount of oxygen allowed during the raku firing and cooling.
Raku Pottery Glazes
Once the piece was fired in the kiln and cooled, I poured, painted and sprayed my different raku glazes. I was very happy with the colors and unique characteristics of this piece, which are the results of the glazes used in the raku pottery firing process. I personally make all of my glaze recipes, making the work more personal and more intimate. I use my glazes to enhance the underlying design and texture of the piece.
