Raku Two - better results this time

The whole point of evening classes is to gain further incite
into a subject that is of interest to you.
At the same time it should also be fun and something you look
forward too each week.
And when it's over you might have been bitten by the bug
and want to do more and feel sad that it's all over.
"I feel all of those things and I'm only the Teacher"

we had a second go at Raku last night, the previous week Rebbecca was
unable to attend the class which would have been the last one.
So instead of her missing out I suggested the rest of us went up the pub for the evening.
which we did.

So this week we tackled the dustbin kiln once more.
I used a smaller burner and raised the shelf.
and I made up some new glazes from recipes sent to me
by Tracey Broome - Thanks Tracey, much appreciated.
Look at the results we got.

Fantastic colours.
My main problem now is remaining focused on what I should be making
and not spending lots of time experimenting.
I think I've been bitten by the Raku Bug.

I knew that bug was going to bite you!!! haha! It's lots of fun with new students, they get so excited by that instant gratification. The pieces look fantastic, great colors there. I'm starting to feel a little itch to do some more Raku, it's been a few months since I have done anything. This is giving me a little push to get busy! Congrats to your students, well done!

It's so hard not to get bitten by the raku bug. These pieces look good, you should be happy with them.

Pottery is the New Yoga?

Earlier in the year one of my daughters sent me a link to an article in Vogue magazine which stated "Pottery is the New Yoga"...
