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.
