I have been busy making things all week but I couldn’t get any decent photos as it’s been so dull and dark, so those are for later.
I can show you my raku clocks that are now adorning my walls, I thought they should be tested for a while before I go into production.
I made this one with the intention of keeping it as I need a clock in the lounge, the shape echoes a metal and glass lamp. This clock has some copper in the texture and at the bottom where the flame licked the surface.
I didn’t intend keeping this one but when I hung it on the wall in the front room it looked perfect, it’s the room where my raku leaves live. I think you might agree that the colours are perfect and the play of light on the texture looks great.
There was a round one but as is the nature of raku it looked like something a cow had deposited so it went in the bin.
I hope to have some clocks in my shop next year. Sounds strange saying that, where has this year gone?
