(New) Raku Flame
16"H x 9"W
This brilliantly colored sculpture was hand built using the American raku pottery firing process. All of my winged raku sculpture pieces are built using a thrown bisque mold and torn slabs of clay. Once they are removed from the mold, they are altered.
Different homemade glazes were then sprayed, poured and/or painted on the piece before it was raku fired. The special glazes I use enhance the underlying design and texture of my raku pottery pieces. The colors of this pottery piece are dependent on the amount of oxygen allowed during the raku firing and cooling.
