Elizabeth Raeburn

Since 1981 Elizabeth has concentrated on Raku firing, this exciting technique always offers an element of surprise which acts as a creative counterbalance to the precisely constructed work. The pieces are all hand-built, mostly decorated with white or coloured slip and finished with a semi-transparent glaze, sometimes using the clay from her own garden. The shapes and shadows of the forms are often emphasised by leaving some surfaces unglazed; these are blackened by the post-firing reduction which is achieved by plunging the red hot pot into sawdust or damp newspaper and quenching with water.
