New Shout Out – Raku

Around the time I moved into my first house, I bought 2 pieces of art. One was a limited edition, art print by Marcel Mouly The other was a Raku pot that I found on eBay. I did not know that much about it, but I thought it looked cool and would fit in with how I was decorating one of the rooms. I hired a painter during the move process and turned out that he made Raku pottery, though was in a transition period because the pigment he liked to use had been outlawed due to its toxicity. (If I remember right).

I am not sure when I first saw thealchemistspottery website, but there you can find some really nice Raku pieces. Here is a video from his site that shows a bit of the process and some of the work.

This is a seperate post made for one of the pieces.
