opper matt
 Stoneware firing
I burn the glazed goods in a simple gas oven. When the glaze reaches its melting point, I lift the goods and reduce
it in sawdust. The characteristic of Raku is the blackness and the crackings. I get the black on the surfaces that are unglaced and the cracking occurs when the goods are lifted out from the oven at about 900ºC. The glaze bursts and soot from the burned sawdust seals the glaze cracks.
