Aloha friends, want to share some more raku fun from this weekend.
My clay group planned this one about three weeks ago and I had these
slip casts ready so off I went. I spent about eight hours glazing these
guys on Saturday, then it was off to the mountain on Sunday morning.



Some of the first batches lining up. All day we were treated to sun, crazy clouds,
hail, rain and a little bit of snow.


A group shot of everybody together. Glazing and firing nine raku mugs in two days is a crapload of work.


Here are the Irwin mugs in celedon, lo fire neon red and lo fire neon orange. I try not to scour
them to hard so they stay a little smokey looking.


Here are the Square Bobs all lined up. The first black one just has white crackle on his face and his bark left unglazed
got a ton of carbon jammed in there. Both of the others have white crackle faces and neon red
and neon orange lo fire glazes.


The first "frank" here has a glaze called abalone, this luster glaze can have crazy efects including gold colors.
Frank here is kind of like shark skin. In soft light it has subtle rose colors and the in brighter light it looks just like copper.
Check out the knarly, bubbly skin on the red Franks right leg.


This color reminds me of the orange guitar amps.


Frank got some crazy flashing and some crusty texture on his left leg.


In some areas I added clear crackle on top of the lo fire glaze which didn't crack much but added some
lighter texture/difference that helped the overall look of the piece. Another killer day with friends and fire!!!
As always, thanks for looking.

If anyone is interested, I will be putting all of these mugs on ebay starting tonight and the next few days.
