Clay Class Raku Firing Day

Mike is arranging pieces to fit into 
the Raku Kiln for firing. 

The kiln is heated to a high temperature 
(about 1,800 °F) then turned off. 
Once opened, the pottery is handled
quickly and carefully while hot!
The heating process took 45 minutes.

 The pottery piece is placed in a barrel
filled with newspaper, covered, and allowed to smoke.
Raku has unpredictable results which u
sually produces intense colors.

Everyone has a good time working on their art.

Mike gave us a demonstration on making a plaster mold.
