Alternative & Bare Clay Raku Work
The bare clay techniques are my favorite ways of firing in raku. They yield one-of-a-kind markings on pots meticulously prepared to withstand the thermal shock and optimize the nuances of the particular firing process used. Most days, I would say saggar is my favorite of these techniques. I love the tonal quality of saggar fired work, and how the finished pieces can tell the story of the combustibles fired with each piece. Other days, I'm partial to the stark blacks & whites of all the other techniques, the instaneous pleasure of applying the horsehair and feathers at 1300 degrees, or watching the sacrificial slips and glazes slip away as the pieces are removed from the reduction bin. What's your favorite? (Please note that raku pieces are decorative and meant to be enjoyed for their unique beauty; they are not functional.)
