(New) Celestial Bodies Raku Tiles


63"L x 27"H

These decorative raku wall tiles were individually cut 9" square from 3/8" thick slabs of clay.  Upon drying, the tiles were bisque fired standing upright in the kiln. Once they are cooled and laid out in the desired size and shape, I pencil draw the patterns you see as a guide for where to apply the underglazes and glazes.  Each tile is created from homemade glazes that I make using different combustibles.  They are then fired 3 at a time in the raku kiln.  

The metallics that I most often use in the glazes are copper, silver, cobalt and chrome. They melt in the firing and leave some spectacular results.  I may also use the glazes to enhance the underlying design or texture of the piece.  The colors of the glaze and the crackle are dependent on the amount of oxygen allowed during the raku firing and cooling. .

For more colors and sizes, please see all my available raku wall hangings.

These wall pieces were created using the raku process. To learn more about my raku pottery and how my wall pieces are created, please visit my raku firing page and please contact me if you would like more information.
