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.
