                   Raku process


Each piece of raku is fired one at a time.  I raise the temperature of the kiln to over 1900 degrees.  At that temperature, the kiln is opened and with long tongs and welding gloves, the piece is lifted out and placed in a trash can that is lined with newspaper.  The piece is so hot that the paper catches on fire and burns up the piece. When the fire reaches a certain point, I put the lid on the trash can. The piece captures this moment in time in the reduction process bringing out the beautiful colors of copper.  Each piece is unique!
