I set fire to all my Ceramics ! Yes literally.!

All my work is Raku and is fired in a Kiln outside, after which it is taken out whilst it is red hot and placed into a dustbin with newspaper and sawdust. It burst into flames and the lid is put on quickly. The smoke that is then created in the Bin creates the markings on my pots, vases and bowls.
