(New) Moonrise 8
35"W x 25.5"H (point to point)
This brilliantly decorated raku wall hanging will make a great entrance piece. Handmade and raku fired, the colors and unique textures that you see were developed using a number of different glaze and underglaze recipes. As with all my raku pottery, the glazes are sprayed, poured and/or painted on each piece.
Raku Pottery Tiles
All of my raku tiles are individually cut 9" square from 3/8" thick slabs of clay. After drying, they are bisque fired standing upright in the kiln. Then I lay them out in the desired size and shape, and draw the pattern on them with a pencil. Using the pattern as a guide, I then apply underglazes and proprietary glazes in the desired areas.
They are then fired 3 at a time in the raku kiln. To hang the ceramic tiles, 4 loop tabs are chemically bonded to the back of each tile. After the bond cures, a wire is threaded through the tabs and secured, so the top of the wire on all of the tiles is 1 1/8" from the top edge when stretched tight. Then I hang the piece using 10 pound picture hooks. When in I get the spacing correct, I take the art tiles down and make a template for clients to use when hanging in their space.
