Raku shell 1 0813 (1280x1181)

This is the first of a batch of new Raku shells I’ve been working on. The copper flashing is particularly satisfying and so is the use of a new glaze I’ve developed. Below is a view from the side, showing some flashing not seen on the front view. Another thing I like about it is the ‘craggy-ness’ of the outside with the white crackle breaking over the tension points.

Here’s another with, below, a detail from the outside of the shell, showing the new glaze.
