I decided to smoke fire my Orange Sea Bowl to see if I could knock back the rampant orange a bit
Here goes…torching is the best bit.
And then it started to rain. A gale blew up. My garden chairs and table flew around the garden. In the dead of night, crept out to the bin to weigh it down with bricks.
At first light…erm, well, at about ten this morning, I put my boots on and draped a coat over my pajamas, and
she was still smoking hot…but I couldn’t resist getting her out of the smoke chamber.
Phew! She survived! There are a few hairline cracks, but then again that happens with most Raku goods, too. I will need to take a proper photograph so that I can put her up for sale on my website, but I couldn’t resist publishing a quick snapshot for now.
This is the way it looked before the smoke firing. Which one is the better?
