Raku Firing

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!
