Raku firing




It ended up being a beautiful day on Sunday for the raku firing. We glazed the pots, put them in the kiln and waited for it to reach to 1,700 degrees F. Then they went into a metal trashcan with leaves, sawdust, etc. After the smoke cleared a little, they went into a water bath and then were scrubbed. One of my pieces cracked after it was submerged in water, but it was just glued back together. A good time was had by all!
