Bucks Pottery and Sculpture Society Raku day

On Saturday, an unexpectedly warm day, members of BPSS and friends gathered at Elaine’s farm in Drayton Beauchamp to Raku their pottery. Richard and I managed to fire over 60 pieces in the day. Paula did some smoke firing as well.

It was a beautiful setting and we were accompanied by red kites and buzzards circling overhead, not to mention numerous dogs and Elaine’s daughter’s magnificent horses. I even managed to find a few loose horse hairs to make a horsehair pot.

Thanks to Peter for the following images of the day’s work:
