Raku in my garden

Yesterday I made some raku ceramics. Testing different glazes. Not all turned out as I wanted. Celadon green turned out emerald. Most yellows turned beige. Back to the drawing board.

  4. Ces, the colors are courtesy of the raku technique. The time in the furnace. The weather. The time in the air before it's emerged in the saw dust. The amount of saw dust and flames, before you put the lid on, etc, etc. You may hope to get a turquoise glaze, but you may just as well end up with a copper red, OR emerald green item. It's great fun. You should try it!
