Another Day, Another Raku Fired Jack-o'-Lantern

That's what jack-o'-lanterns look like when they're heated to 1850 degrees Fahrenheit.
The insanity continues. With fourteen hour days the norm, I'm getting things finished up and getting other things started. (I am completely freaked out that I haven't done my segment for Hauntcast, yet! That will get done over the weekend, I suspect...)
Cooling off after getting out of the post-firing reduction process. After they cool,
I scrub off the carbon left on the glaze with a kitchen scrub pad. 
I did manage to get a Raku firing done with Mr. ShellHawk's help, however. I'm actually pretty happy with the results.
I had to include some daylight shots so you could see how the crackle looks in better lighting.
 If these don't sell this weekend at Abel's, I'll put them in my Etsy store on Monday. As usual, the shop goes on vacation from today through Sunday night, so I don't sell the same item to two separate people.

Meanwhile, happy building, peeps!

  1. Raku! Raku! You know I'm a sucker for Raku. You know, Yetch is in San Jose as I type this, and he DOES have a rental car, though I'm not sure I could convince him to drive out to your place ;)

    Looks like most of them sold anyway! Congrats!

    1. Nope! Not all of them got posted, yet! And Yetch is always welcome!
