(New) Space Rock Globe
9"H x 12"W
This one-of-a-kind Space Rock Globe is a sure conversation starter and will add a unique flare to any interior setting. It’s reflective properties and unique textures make it a lively piece that can stand alone as an entrance piece or on a mantle.
All of my raku pottery was crafted using the American raku process. This gloev was first created on the potter’s wheel before being fired in the bisque kiln. Following the firing, I applied various proprietary glazes and underglazes which are poured, sprayed and painted onto the pottery prior to being raku fired.
Raku Pottery Firing
The unique glazes that I add enhance the underlying design and texture of the pottery piece. Once the glazes are applied, I fire the pottery in a small raku kiln and when the desired temperature is reached (1875 degrees Fahrenheit) the kiln is opened and the piece is pulled out and placed in a metal container, using newspaper as my combustible. By containing the fire, I am able to create the desired effects by placing a lid on the reduction chamber, smothering the flames and creating a carbon-rich environment. When I open the container after about 30 minutes, I am always surprised by the results and feel like a kid at Christmas!
