Most of the raku vessels that I make are thrown on the wheel. Some are altered, some are not. I develop all of my glaze recipes, which makes the work more personal.
This was first created on the potter's wheel and shaped before it was fired in the kiln and cooled. Various homemade glazes were then sprayed, poured and/or painted on the piece before it was raku fired. These unique glazes helped to enhance the underlying design, colors and textures of the raku pottery piece. The reds, yellows, blues and purples that you see were dependent on the amount of oxygen allowed during the raku firing and cooling. My unique glaze combinations and raku firing techniques make each ceramic piece completely different from the rest.
