We all had a great week where the weather really was amazing in a rather idyllic setting...
Along with the usual selling, banter and business, I managed to get my first Raku work fired in the New Kiln.... after a bit of trouble with the burner, the chaps at Northern Kilns told me an easy fix and we were on our way!
The pieces were at about 1000C when we took off the lid and proceeded to take out the pieces and pop them in the sawdust bin to reduce and smoke for 20 mins...
C'est La Vie.....
|only slightly cleaned...|
|inside the box you can see where the copper has reduced and turned red/ petrolly|
|drying out the pieces on top of the firing kiln...|
|nice and clean now!|
|difficult to see the copper flashes...|
|these pieces sold within 20 mins!|
|complete with casualty.... i dropped it!|
