Thanks tatum for taking the photos of me in the process!
Materials: A wheel thrown bisqued bowl made with Long Beach clay Metallic black raku glaze Lava Flow raku glaze One Small metal can filled with bark from a birch tree and about three pages of the local newspaper. And a kiln fired to about 1600 degrees. So happy with the results, the surface of the bowl has flashes of green and gold areas of black metallic and copper. A tortured surface going from the hot kiln to the cooling water in about 4 to 5 minutes! It's a relatively simple and spontaneous, immediate process that produces some beautiful results. Survived the cycle of earth, fire, air and water!
