Raku and Throwing on the WheelPosted: November 19, 2013
Great workshops today Raku glazing and throwing, looking forward to learning to use the raku kiln and playing around with reduction atmosphere techniques. Throwing was hard, I seemed to get the hang of wedging though. Centring was particularly difficult, it was taking some time to get it right; hopefully with practise I will improve. When pulling up the walls of the vessel I perhaps need to take more time but with fewer runs over. Also stopping while the goings good would be useful as i messed up all my pots today and did not produce a single decent one. Better luck next time.
