At last a break form the rain today, the sun was shinning so I took the opportunity to catch up with some Raku firing.
Helped by my friend and fellow ceramicist Ros I spent the day making little horsehair pots.
|This is the Raku kiln that I built a couple of years ago .|
It is great in the fact that it is really easy to set up and pack away.
I literary wheel it in and out of the shed, connect the gas and away I go!
|These are the pots after I have taken them out of the kiln and placed the horsehair on, before I clean them up.|
|We had a little visitor checking that we were doing it right!|
And these are the results!
Just need to take some nice pictures now before whisking them of to the shops!
