Raku firing- take 2

I had another go at raku firing this morning, the results were better but I need to make some adjustments.

Raku firing isn’t the best thing to do when you have a chesty cough, but the weather was right, not much wind, but saying that the whole house smells a bit like a kipper smoke house.

I’m going to keep practising, maybe third time lucky, but I think I got 3 good pieces, although the colours don’t show up too well in the photos.
