We are sooo excited about our newly built raku kiln!! It had it's maiden voyage just recently and we are more than delighted with the stunning results we have been getting with beautiful crisp multicoloured metallics!
We've added a few photos to show you what we are talking about!
The new raku kiln ~ just built!
Dave & Sarah modelling the coordinating fire suits!
Getting ready to do the very first lift! Out at over 1000c degrees!
The first lift!
Reducing with organic materials ~ this is where most of the 'magic' happens!...and we get terribly excited!!
Getting the lid on!
And the end result! We are just absolutely loving all these amazing metallic colours!!
Most of our work has beautiful reflective and metallic properties that just don't show in our photos! It's almost impossible to capture what you see with the naked eye.
The beauty of a lot of the wall pieces is that no matter where you decide to hang it, as the light in the room changes throughout the day, you will always see little changes, reflections and details depending on which way the light catches the piece!
So, to try and demonstrate this, we have taken a very short video just to show you what we mean!
This is a video of a large lily piece "Celebrate Life" which has a beautiful oil slick background. Watch how all those stunning colours almost 'move' and change with the different angles of the light! - We're excited!!
This video is of our "Irish Coast at Sunset". This really shows how the pieces reflect a true sunset across the water!
This video is of "Live Life to the Full" a stunning new butterfly piece with a 'rainforest' like background. Just look at how all the colours come to life as the light moves and bounces off the colourful details in the background!
I had such a lovely weekend meeting so many wonderful and incredibly enthusiastic customers at The Kilkenny Shop Douglas Court Shopping Centre, Cork and Emmet Place, Cork city!
Not only were all the customers amazing but I have to say all the staff are such lovely ladies too!
It's always great to meet the faces behind the voices! (We talk on the phone usually!).
Thanks again to The Kilkenny Group for such a great opportunity and of course to all the fantastic customers who made the effort to call in just to say hello!! ....Until next year!
We are delighted to have been chosen to be featured in the Kilkenny Shop windows for Kilkenny IRISH Craft & Design week 2015! Keep an eye out for the sculptures in each store window which we made to try and show how all of our work is #handmade all starting with a ball of clay! #kilkennyirishcraftanddesi
