One a Day in May - Day 14 - Raku

I had a great day today taking the first part of a two day raku pottery workshop.  It involved 5 hours of driving to get there and back but it was worth it.

 We were each given a bag of clay to make as many pieces as we wanted.  I made two fairly big pieces.  I can't show my vase yet cause I already had it wrapped up in towels and plastic before I remembered to get my camera from the car.  But here is a small sunflower wall hanging (about 12 inches tall) that I did.


I still have lots of clay so if I have time I'll make some more small pieces and bisque fire them at home before the second day of the workshop later this month.

  1. Liz, if it's been a while since you've worked with clay, I'd not know it, that is fantastic!! Can't wait to see the vase and both after they are fired!
