Well I've blogged a lot recently about my project to make a special Jug for the Studio Pottery Collection at Chelmsford Museum in Essex. It was hard work to do- with a lot of "spoilers"- cracking pots- and downright disasters! As you know by now- copper matte raku is one heck of a technique to master...and double trouble with a large vessel.
However 1 or 2 were absolute gems. This week I hope to do a photo session and you can view the results soon. I will be taking in the finished pot to the Museum this week. Meanwhile, here is one of the pots- flaming away prior to be being sealed in the reduction chamber.
