Lustre Raku Thrown Pot 0174


Description

Raku is a firing technique - fast firing, rapid cooling. Lustre refers to the glaze used and the finished texture. Thrown just means that it has been thrown on a traditional pottery wheel, with some turning to make the final shape until I'm happy with the form.

One of the reasons I like lustre glaze is because of the contrast between the matt body and the glowing iridescence the glaze reveals. The way the light and glaze reacts produces such a spectrum of colours it'll take your breath away.

Approx Size: 6x9in 16x22cm
Price: £90 (including VAT & delivery)

Copper Matt Raku Stretch Pot 0173

Description

Raku is a firing technique - fast firing, rapid cooling. Copper Matt refers to the glaze used and the finished texture. Stretch is a style where I throw the piece on a traditional pottery wheel using a batt mount. Once it's thrown, I turn the batt upside down with the pot attached and form, manipulate and tear the piece until I achieve my artistic intent.

These are really special types of pot. Why? Because so few make it through firing to a finished piece!
