Had an excellent day raku firing in the gardens behind York Art Gallery as part of the 2018 Day of Clay . I was busy so didn’t take many pictures but here are the four octopuses each with a different choice of pattern chosen by the girls holding them, by a friend, and one by me, plus my cow and a few pots which didn’t get picked up.
The cow was a one off, solid thing, which may not have survived the first firing but it worked fairly well [except the white glaze was too watery]. Maybe I’ll make a larger one [and this time have reference pictures and not rely solely on memory]. And if that works then maybe make a mould for the next public raku firing.
