I really love this contemporary theme of black and white with just the one bright red umbrella! It can symbolise so many things in life and comes from the expression "Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain".
Stunning and dreamy soft and vibrant pinks, delicate oil slick metallics on a truly 'PURE' raku fired background! To me this is what raku is all about! Where the smoke penetrates the clay during the firing, to give these wonderful matt slate, greys and soft black finish!
This piece portrays the stunning, rugged coastline of our beautiful Ireland! With turquoises, blues, greens and tiny hints of metallic reflections as the sunset kisses the water. Always reminds me of my favourite beach as a child.
