Raku Sunrise Platter


16"W x 4"D | Wired for Hanging

This colorful raku platter was first inspired by the views from my home studio in the Smoky Mountains near Weaverville, NC.  

Raku Pottery Platter

After bisque firing, the pattern is drawn on the platter with a pencil.  Using the pattern as a guide, I then apply underglazes and my own proprietary glazes in the desired areas.  The glazes are sprayed, poured and/or painted on the pieces. The piece is then fired in the raku kiln.  My pottery glazes are unique and help to make the entire process more personal. I’m working on testing new recipes all of the time. There is something serene about creating the chemical bonds that add the characteristics, features, textures and colors of each raku pottery piece make. This piece is ready to hang and also makes a nice stand alone piece in a well lit hallway. I’m working on testing new recipes all of the time.
