Cracked terra sgillata or Terra raku.

I have been trying for a long time now to get a crackle on my terra sigillata pots. I seem to have found the right method now so all i have to work on now is theĀ  smoke reaction that i am still getting on the side of the pot as i just want it in the cracks.I will change my method of terra. application next time.

Raku day.

This is the outcome of our raku tests yesterday. The clay mix stood up very well but our glazing was too thin on some pieces and had cold spots in the oven that we have to sort out before next test run.
