Raku Pottery Workshop

I love this technique!

I attended a raku workshop with Sawtooth, taught by Gaff Pearce, and these are two of my resulting pieces.

Raku is instant gratification. We all took pieces already bisque fired and learned the process of raku by doing. And the pieces are glazed so quickly we took them home immediately.

Great fun, even if it is just for display (never use).

Vineyard Series

Grape vines are growing strong, and with them, lush leaves!
I love this series, the Vineyard Series, even if the season limits the pieces I can create in it each year. These are the first of our grape leaves, and as the season goes on, I will switch to leaves of a local vineyard (with permission, of course).
