Naked Raku

My first go at naked Raku, thanx to dirty girl pottery, where I got a recipe that is simple and her results were great . Mine came out pretty good, learned a few things to differently next time , but , as usual, when the Raku kiln is fired up, fun was had by all in attendance

Blown Away

so , last thurs. i opened my first home firing of the kiln i recently aquired, inside were , among other things 32 mugs and tea cups . today i have only the two that my wife and i claimed for ourselves . while 10 were commisioned , i am still kind odf amazed they all went so fast. i was planning on putting a few on my etsy shop to see if they would sell better than my “art” pieces , but i dont have any left to do that with . all i can really say is wow!
