We are so excited about the stunning oil slick metallics on this butterflies piece! The colours all change throughout the day in different lighting, where you will see so many beautiful details every time you look at it! This, to me, is what real raku is all about! We achieved the stunning colours by using different hardwoods in our firings!
I combined my whimsical hot air balloons with my butterflies! This piece is thought provoking with a sense of freedom, dreams, success, love and adventure! "Imagine the Impossible"....because that's where the magic begins...and anything is possible!
For anyone who has experienced the atmosphere of love and romance in beautiful Venice, with it's gondolas and sunshine, this piece should definitely evoke some nostalgic images and emotions! It has a little more of a contemporary feel than most of our other designs, but oozes romance, love and passion, with it's sun kissed metallic shimmers on the water.
