Hi everyone,
I just finished putting up 40 new pictures of, mostly, "raku stoneware":
cone 10 clay bisqued to cone 2 (not 02) and then raku fired. As has been
here noted, thermal shock is a problem. Therefore also note the "puzzle
series" of pieces where I've taken those thermal shocked guys, broken them
up into pieces, smoked the pieces over a barbaque, and glued them back
I hope you'll take the time to have a look.

sorry if this appears twice, I forgot the title on the first go around.
