The photographs in this gallery are all of work produced using the Raku firing process. Raku pieces are always unique and their appearance can never be fully predicted. Here are examples of the range of work produced, some in collaboration with Richard Ballantyne (see ‘About’ tab for more information).
Raku ware should not be kept outside as the finish is unable to withstand prolonged exposure to the elements without some degradation.
