Here are a few of my unusual little treasures ...
|Some of the softer colors from a firing done this spring. These pods are actually pendants. They each have a hole in the top to add to your project. Love the pale pinks, blues and metallics.|
|Finished Pendant using raku pod.|
|Another finished piece using an on the edge spear. The raku glaze is only on the edges of the pendants...turned sideways to add more dimension.|
|Raku always has a mind of its own:) I was hoping for soft blues and metallics but was offered this wonderful earthy mixture of color. Reminds me of an ancient patina bronze. It is always a surprise when I open the kiln!|
|This is my faux raku version of the pendant from above. Which is which??|
|With the faux raku I can create vivid color on both sides of pendants. That helps if the piece will be seen on both sides as in dangling earrings.|
Thanks so much for visiting. Please do visit the Art Bead Scene blog to see amazing raku work from some of the best around:) As always...Health, Happiness and Abundant Creativity to each and all!!
