Pottery projects creating glazing firing so much fun

hot from kiln (1600) into hay and wood chips

Raku firing

 My students and I researched Raku firing and decided to give it a try. I ordered raku clay  that has more grog (fells like sand)  in it , less change of cracking from thermal shock. We made all the pots in class. Then they were Bisque fired, and  glazed with a low fire glaze, then I put them in the kiln for a second time and brought it up to 1600. I started the kiln early and around 1:00 my student came for a Raku party.
