love raku

Work in Progress

This is a diary of the projects I have been working on over the months. Most of the images are of work waiting to be biscuit-fired or before the final raku firing. The finished work can be seen on the Gallery page.

This album shows three types of form: shallow dishes, slab pots and panels, together with some thrown bottles in the last two images.  The first ones are waiting to be biscuit-fired and the black and white ones at the end are waiting for a calm, non-windy day, so I can give them the final firing – raku.  They are all slab-built and I’m working on the textures found in rocks.


All of the work in this album is waiting to be biscuit-fired, all handbuilt, which is a departure from my usual thrown pots.  I’m exploring the possibilities of texture.
