I am very excited that I finally got a chance to Raku fire some beads that have been waiting since late fall for the weather to be warm enough for me to fire them outdoors. On Wednesday, squeezed in between a week of rain and snow and another bad weather week coming up, I was able to do a firing. And make a video of it. This was the first time that I have used a terra cotta clay for a Raku firing so I was a bit apprehensive about how they would turn out. But all went well and I am so pleased with the results.
