We are so very excited about this piece which was fired with horse hair! This is a gorgeous and really exciting new method of raku firing we have been working on and so far this is only the fourth one of it's kind in our collection!
Quite a contemporary feel to this compared to a lot of our other pieces, yet with a very powerful message with the solitary little red heart representing 'One True Love'.
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!
Stunning and dreamy soft and vibrant turquoise and blues, stunning 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! The rainbow of colours in the metallics will change throughout the day as the light changes...
