Torching a Raku Piece

I love flame! At least I love controlled flame in a creative artsy setting.
Two of my fabulous students last semester gifted me with a torch and I have been enjoying finishing up my Raku pieces with the added touch a torch flame brings. With a bit of flame and a Raku fired surface, the metallic glazes get even more delightful.

Take a look at the finishing of one of my “Medusa” sculptures. Love it!
