Description

Raku Beads & Pendants Trunk Show

Get ready to see the incredible work of Amy Mealey, an amazing potter and bead artist. She hand makes porcelain beads and pendants and then Raku fire them. Raku is a firing process. The beads and pendants are removed from a very hot kiln (about 1800F) and quickly immersed into a metal container filled with shredded news paper. The lid is immediately closed and the reduction process begins. The oxygen is burned up around the beads and pendants resulting in beautiful color flashes, due to the copper in the glazes. You don't always know exactly what colors will come out, so it is a wonderful surprise every time she fires!!!
