billy lee teaching raku
last saturday, our friend, billy lee, set up his homemade kiln on the lawn next to our gallery & demonstrated glazing & firing of raku pottery. some pieces were glazed to provide a crackle finish. we added horse hair to other pieces to gain carbon imprints. it was always surprising to see what emerged from the 1800 degree kiln. billy is one of a kind & we all had a great afternoon. thanks to angie breyne for adding her expertise to this event.
