Evening Class Raku

Back in freezing January this year, my short course students at Grays did some raku firing.  Neal Murray attended and took some spectacular photographs.  Thanks Neal!
Taking pieces out at about 900C - with collapsed kiln shelf, aargh!
Students adding sawdust to create reduction athmosphere.
Work cooling (and sticking together)
removing work
Placing work into sawdust bins, the sawdust immediately catches fire.
Watch the eyebrows!
The smoke is pungent, you end up smlling like a kipper, aha
