Height 14 inches
white stoneware; "naked raku"

My current body of work used the technique of raku with resist slip called "Naked Raku". Forms thrown on the wheel, smoothed and polished . They are then coated with terra sigillata , bisque fired and coated with a layer of slip and glaze. Firings take place in a raku kiln. When the glaze matures the form is removed and placed in a container with wood shavings where it smokes and burns. After the form is completely cool the slip/glaze layer is peeled away. What is left behind is a beautiful , unglazed surface with patterns created by smoke and fire.
