Join us and watch UP potter Barry Burnstein will demo the raku process.
"I've been making vessels and firing in the Raku process for over 35 years. I use the vessel form as my canvas and the firing process as my paint brush. Slight adjustments in the firing and cooling create a wide range of colors and textures. I try to create visually strong forms and strong surface treatment. Pieces must have both to be considered successful. I make simple forms with very little embellishment to get at the strength and inner beauty of the vessel form."
