raku pendant

Took part in my school's annual raku firing, off campus, from 4:30 until midnight. (Hence the late post.) I don't teach clay, but the process is so interesting, and the results with the glazes are so varied and unexpected, that I am quick to volunteer each year as an extra chaperone. This year I made a pendant. The white crackle glaze has flashes of gold and brown in it - the unglazed edges and gouged stripe are black.

I will look forward to your future sketches!

I really like this sketch. Looks like the pendant is sitting right on top of your sketchbook.

Your pendant came out great last night at the Raku firing and your presence is becoming a tradition which I cherish.
I loved your rendering of the pendant especially the corner of crackle glaze.
