Jan Lee Jan Lee Jan Lee’s naked raku and saggar-fired works balance a soft elegance of form with the intense crackling electricity of daring smoke patterns. These meticulously smooth vessels serve as a quiet frame for bold swaths of lightning, fracture, and inferno
Charlie & Linda Riggs | "Fossil Pot". C Riggs are nationally renowned experts on alternative firing techniques. Most of their work is thrown by Charlie who takes time to make a very smooth surface that will later be polished with terra sigillata. These pots are then finished with one of the smoke fired techniques that results in a shiny unglazed surface brilliant with the colors of saggar firing, the bold blacks and whites of naked raku or the subtle marks of horsehair and ferric chloride.

"I am concentrating on simple forms, trying to integrate balance and tension, stillness and movement, expansion and the containment of volume. The distinctive patterning which complements these burnished forms is achieved in a carefully organized secondary smoke firing"
