Is Paul's work also sold under the Arataki brand name?

Paul Hemara Empty More Paul Hemara pots

Post  Maryr on Tue 12 May - 11:45

These are the property of Beverley White who once owned Stage Artware. When Hemara was making her moulds, she used to pop next door to see what Paul had been making and buy if one caught her eye. These are mainly seconds but you wouldn't know it.  I didn't measure them but the tallest is about 60-70 cm tall.  They are straw fired - I gather they put straw around the pots and it left those lovely marks when it burned - hoping that one of you potters can give a fuller explanation cos I am sure it's not as simple as that!

Not ever having been involved in a straw firing, I can only guess at the process. Straw is tied around the pot and then it is fired to around 1000' in an oxidising atmosphere. The straw carbonises when it burns and leaves lines etched into the clay. Perhaps someone who has used this technique could add further information.
