Summer Time

And the living is easy…..

Sounds like a plan right?!

Speaking of easy… I am currently in pottery class learning/doing alternate firing processes. We are going to be doing several different Raku firings, pit firing, barrel firing, soda something and ending with luster(ing?)… [still learning LOL]

Here is an example of one of the processes – this is called Naked Raku:

terra sigillata

Naked Raku Orb by Charles and Linda Riggs, 2003. 7 in. (18 cm) in width. Stoneware painted with white terra sigillata and polished with a soft cloth, bisque fired to cone 010, covered in resist slip and glaze. Sgraffito through glaze before raku firing to 1400ºF (760°C).
