Raku Vortex 4
8"D x 11"W x 11"H
This colorful raku sculpture was built using a thrown bisque mold and torn slabs of clay. Once they are removed from the mold, they are altered. The base that this raku piece sits on is also made from torn pieces of slabs. The colors come from glazes and underglazes. The body of the raku pottery vessel can either be epoxied to the base or attached using museum wax. Of course both the body and base are raku fired.
This unique raku pottery sculpture was hand built using the raku firing process. Please see here for more of my available raku sculptures. I develop all of my glaze recipes myself, which to me makes the work more personal and more intimate. The glazes are then sprayed, poured and/or painted on the pieces. As with all of my raku pottery, no two pieces are alike!
