Yesterday, I went to the pottery studio and glazed my precious pears plus these two pots. I'm planning to give the pears stick stems after the raku firing which happens this coming Sunday. Pray that they don't blow up in the kiln!
Teacher Bertine figures I used rainbow and copper glazes on the bowl I made last year. Don't you just love the names rainbow and copper? If she is right (and I really hope she is) then my pears should come out looking like the finished bowl in the photo above ... but there are no guarantees in raku firings. Wish me and the little babes luck!
