NOT JUST RAKU.

After I did my first raku firing I thought this is not for me, and look at me now!
It's not just raku there are lots of tricky bits, get the glaze right, the firing, the reduction and after all that the outcome is still unpredictable.
So here are a few wall-tiles finished after that last firing.

                     Just a white crackle glaze with a different glaze on the hearts, no glaze on the black bits.




I'm happy the way the turquoise worked here, for some reason often it reduces to much and many times it goes a yukky brown-red.

Mmmmmmmm........not sure about this one!



A mixture of glazes, fish should have been brighter!
