Lustre Raku Thrown Pot 0187

Description

Raku is a firing technique - fast firing, rapid cooling. Lustre refers to the glaze used and the finished texture.

To get this range of colours and the opaque quality of the glaze, I used five different metallic oxides in the recipe; tin, copper, cobalt, silver and iron.

For this particular pot I fired in a reducing atmosphere in the Raku kiln for the colour as well as reducing again in post-firing to get the lustre. In lustre glaze the contrast between the matt body and the spectrum of glowing iridescent colours can be spectacular due to the way the light and glaze reacts next to matt black.
