I've been taking raku for a while now and figured I should get on the ball and post a few things... this last session had us finishing up out class with a Japanese tea ceremony and here is the cup I made for it.
sorry for the crummy images, I was working with my cell phone too late at night

The outside is Dee's Discovery (I  should say I'm almost positive that's what it is)

and the inside is Blue Nebula that has been heavily reduced.  It is this really neat yellowish/greenish/silvery/blue and neither picture does it justice.


thanks for looking

I like the ridges and variation in colour, I'm not really brave enough for Raku!

Thank you!

I grew up doing handbuilding and sculpting so when moving into raku, the big thing for me is the glazes.  I do feel a bit limited in what has been supplied for us and not brave enough to mix my own.  If they just had purple.....

My fav part is the instant, hands on firing.  I get to glaze my piece and fire it and cool it right away... It takes about two hours on average which just seem so fast compared to regular glazes.
