i took a small but fun raku glaze class
here are some pictures of the event
first, there are the white blank bowls haha
then, there is the dipping
we had 3 glazes available, one white crackly and two multi-coloured iridescent finishesdip!
it doesn't look like much when its not cooked
any part not coated will turn black
then, there is the cooking
waiting to be cooked
it took about half an hour
fresh out of the kiln!
then, they cool it down in sawdust
and then they cool it down some more in water
it comes out cool but dirty
so we scrub it with a coarse scrubbing thingy (official term, i swear hahaha)
the one in the middle is mine
