I shared a ride with two others and met at the property of Master Potter, Steve Harrison and his partner, Janine.
|Steve Harrison getting his raku kilns fired up|
|my friend Joe glazing his pots|
We all helped stoke his natty little wood firing kilns, move the hot pots to the sawdust for the post reduction and at the end of the day, pack it all away.
|in the firebox|
|Sally and Helen moving the sawdust over the pots while Rhonda and Dorothy watch for the next load.|
A mixed result for me but when you don't use this technique very often it can be tricky...
Here are some of the better ones:
|this is probably the best result although it wasn't put in the sawdust so no post firing reduction|
|this glaze is likely to crackle more in days to come|
|some very subtle colours with this one and it has a bit of a landscape affect|
|my pears look a bit stressed...|
