Raku teapots and tea bowls

So, what a brilliant month!  I joined a Raku course with Andy Mason @ the Art Centre in Salisbury.  2 years ago I did the same thing and found it quite unpredictable and elemental especially in the firing of the finished pieces. The throwing and turning of the clay I have control over but the firing - no way. Admittedly the work is porous and not as strong as stoneware but it certainly has its place.
