My raku is unique because of the copper raku glaze that I developed. The magic of the fire brings out the colors of copper. Each piece captures the fire in a different way and the end result is that each piece, either hand built or thrown, has its own unique colors. I love to design and build a form, carve the textures to enhance the design and then raku the piece. Color, form and texture combine to make a cohesive statement in clay.

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