Raku Angel Tile
Let this Raku Angel remind us how angels are a beautiful part of the guidance in our lives. If you feel the guidance you may also like the Angelic Series of Sound Essence Mists.
Each angel tile is fired in an outdoor kiln to 2000 degrees F. It is then pulled from the red hot oven and plunged into a sand pit with wood shavings. The red hot vessel causes the shavings to ignite. After the flames reach their maximum height, I cover the inferno with a metal drum. The unique manner in which the fire burns each time creates the unique splashing of colors from the copper glaze on the Raku art piece. The intense change in temperature from the red hot kiln to the outdoor atmosphere shocks the glaze, causing cracks. The smoke penetrates any unpainted parts of the ceramic art, turning it black. The black lines in the crackle are from the smoke penetrating the fissures in the transparent glaze.
