Last weekend we had a raku firing. It was a bit of a desperate firing as the work I expected to get out of it had already been selected to exhibit in the Clunes Ceramic Award show, so you can imagine….NO PRESSURE! Lucky for me the Universe was looking out for me. Here is a shot of them ‘green’ and finished. After they have come out of the raku they have to be washed and dried and then polished. Here they are drying in front of the heater (it’s winter) before I apply the wax and then buffed to a sheen.
