After 25 years of Raku firing, we developed two distinct primitive firings the last 8-10 years.
They either involve a sawdust pit firing, creating unique fire clouds as well as colorful patinas.
Or, the second style of firing uses straw to give the piece straw impressions and rich sepia tones. After the straw firing, additional painting is done using oils, acrylic,oil paint stick and modeling paste to further embellish our unusual clay art. In order to preserve the finishes for lasting beauty, several coats of a clear satin acrylic are applied to all surfaces.
