Collaboration with Elements Pottery here on Etsy. http://www.etsy.com/shop/elementspottery
I created the piece and Duane glazed the piece and did the Raku firing. :-)
This Flower Pendant measures 1 3/4"
Stringing hole is 4mm
Created with Raku Clay
When the kiln reaches 1850 degrees, the red hot pieces are removed from the kiln and placed into a barrel of paper, straw, sawdust which instantly ignites. The barrel is then tightly covered and the work is allowed to smoke for a duration.
Raku is so trans-formative. The glaze looks like copper with green-blue patina highlights as well as many other colors. Truly painted by fire and smoke. The crackles are part of the rustic raku surface and not defective.
Thanks for taking a look ..
