Gecko on Orb
A T-light holder with a difference - a carved Ghecko.
Raku fired with a fantastic orange glaze, one of my range of geometric animal forms, this design available without T-light holder and in other colours.
FIRING PROCESS: After making the piece and the work the has been 'Bisque Fired' the work is masked/waxed or latex resisted, if required. Coats of glaze are then applied by dipping, pouring or brushing. The next process is to fire in one of my Raku kilns to a temperature of around 900-1000 degrees C. Once the glazes have melted and take on the look of a hot toffee-apple, the work is removed from the kiln and the fantastic effects are achieved by the reduction technique. left to cool and than buried in the sawdust of for a high lustre placed in sawdust and buried straight away.
