Glaze Raking

Here are pictures from the Glaze Raking Workshop we attended at OCS last month.

We used thinned concepts colors in squeeze bottles to add color; then “raked” through it with the tip of a liner brush. The plates were done on a turntable. After applying clear glaze the pieces were then fired.

This technique will be offered on a bowl or plate during each of the Open Classes sometime during the next few weeks. Since it doesn’t take much time to do, students will still be able to work on their regular projects. Even the kids will have fun doing this project.
