Thanks nancy

Tonight I collected a series of four beakers thrown with the aim of them being identical. Here's two of them:

and

Their differences are more obvious than their similarities in the flesh.

Post  TonyK on Tue 20 Sep - 4:16

Tonight I was going to a raku firing - the regulator could not be coaxed to work and so instead we sat and drank wine and ate nice food and talked about pottery and life - the firing is re-scheduled for later this month.

As a very narrow-minded person I've always been dismissive of raku pieces as hippy nonsense but then I was talked into going to a raku firing on Monday night - I still smell of it and my eyes hurt but it was a lot of fun and involved a few bottles of red wine

Crikey I've never seen layers of raku like that before Shocked
How are they quickly reduced in sawdust/leaves/etc before they oxidise?
Perhaps they are left to oxidise?
And don't get the magic that happens when reduction occurs...?
I've only experienced one shelf at a time in the countless raku firings that I've been involved with.
Fill me in please Tony.

There were bins of sawdust that the pieces were dropped in and the lids closed, more sawdust added, more pieces added, more sawdust, and then they were transferred to buckets of water. A few were left out of the sawdust process but most went through it.First fired pieces - Page 2 13010

The two tutors dismantled the kiln and transferred the pots one at a time from each shelf I've only been at one raku firing and this was it - it sound as though this was the standard procedure at Pine Street though.

Hahaa that is great reduction smoke showing in the photo .... covers every part of ones body and stinks for some time ... as do the pieces fired.

That's incredible Tony thanks! That is the great thing about pottery - always something knew to learn! I would never have considered doing a raku firing that way, but it does make sense when there are many pots to get fired. How long did it take to get the kiln up to temperature?

I think it was a couple of hours but I can probably get a more exact answer from the tutor or from looking at the photos' image properties - the tutors did a test firing of some glazes first so dismantled a hot kiln - some of the shelves from the first firing were used in the second so would have had stored heat - it was a magical process and when I get back there when this term starts I'll collect the pieces I had in the firing and post photos of them

Teapots are not easy to make and to get them to pour without dribbling is a major!
Great job so far Tony!

Tonight I picked up the teapots that had their glaze firing over the holidays. I've managed to get the lid stuck on the green one.

Thanks - the white one drips and the lid on the green one is stuck fast probably by glaze. The glazes were developed by my pottery tutor Anthony Brink. You can see what these pieces could've looked like here: http://www.anthonybrink.com.au/
