Naked Raku

 

This process is called 'naked' because it has no glazed surface. The black and white patterning is achieved by applying a liquid clay over the piece, placed in a small kiln, and fired to 1500 degrees. It is then removed while still hot and placed in a closed container with paper and sawdust to create smoke around the piece. The final surface is coated with a crystalline wax to give a satin smooth finish.
