Weather clear....raku done!

It was a long, long winter....but I was able to get many pots made....and ready....waiting on my shelves for spring time. I had ordered my new kiln that finally came in early May....but then, the weather wasn't really co-oporating much at all!
Rakuing is an outdoor sport, and this spring didn't give us much sunshine!
Finally......there was a break in the weather, school was finished for the year, and my schedule was also cleared. 
Raku, it was...and what a fine day!
My good friend, David Hamill, assisted me with the rakuing process....and together it was like ballet!
We got a system down and the raku kiln worked great.
A little burnt grass is not too much to sacrifice for such pieces!
