Raku at Greenwich Community College 2017


Student work from this years Raku course.

 Showing great use of wax or no glaze for black areas.

Handcarved Salt dishes, which stacked for firing, as no glaze top and bottom, thus taking up less kiln space than they would have, had they all been fired separately.

Vessels dipped in white and copper glaze not overlapping in some areas leaving unglazed areas which go black after firing when smoked in sawdust.

Showing wax applied before dipping into glaze, the wax resists the glaze and goes black after firing when smoked in sawdust.
