"The Dancer" was rakued fired and then cleaned with SOS. Here is the finished piece. I was excited with the final piece. From the concept and first drawing to the forming of the piece, drying time, bisque firing, glazing and then raku firing, the process took about two weeks. I love the short turn around time from concept to finished piece.
This is a photo of my newest piece, "the dancer". If you look through the arm, you can see the drawing that I started with. She has been bisqued fired and I have applied the glaze. She is now ready to be rakued.

After the endless winter, I am able to raku fire once more. The colors of copper are back in my vocabulary!
