my new raku fired Buddha plaque

We were completely socked in yesterday and there was drizzle or mist coming down off and on all day. It was warm and humid and actually quite enjoyable to be out in – and fortunately the wet weather didn’t affect our weekly raku firing!

There were 4 of us firing things and we had so many pieces that we had to do two loads. However the second firing took much less time than the first, since the kiln was already quite warm. This time we all took our pieces out of the cans with the burned paper in them after only 20 to 40 minutes. It’s very exciting, seeing what magic the heat and the ashes have wrought! My favorite piece from this firing is the Buddha plaque shown above. I am learning as I go and having fun..
