Raku Pottery

Following are a few examples of my raku pottery. I really enjoy making pots of different sizes; some I embellish with additions, others I let the “kiss of the fire” do the decorating!

The copper metallic glaze used here was poured diagonally on the pot and is in dramatic contrast to the carbon blackened areas which have no glaze.

You can actually see the ‘flame work’ on this raku pot! The exterior glaze is a matte which contrasts nicely with the glossy interior glaze.

      Thank you & I’d be happy to fully address your question if I know more specifics. According to what I see online, it appears that Rob does mostly pit firing while I concentrate on raku firing.

    We own a large (16″ across and 10″ tall) raku pot that has copper wire wrapped around the waist of the pot. We bought it at a gallery in Santa Fe in 1994 (on Canyon Road, if my memory is correct). It’s signed “Anderson” on the bottom.

    The pot has a rough stone texture – not at all the smooth glass of your current pieces. It’s primarily red/burgundy, but also has tones of purple, turquoise, deep blue, and charcoal with a crazed white ceramic collar around the opening. The gallery told us the pot was made by the raku process, but it doesn’t look like your other work. Do you recall making this kind of pottery, and was it made by the raku process?

      Hi Jennifer and thanks for your inquiry! It’s hard to know for sure if the pot is mine or not tho I will say it doesn’t sound like one of mine. I did however have work in a Gallery on Canyon Rd. for awhile. One thing that causes me to think it’s NOT mine is I’ve always signed my pots (on the bottom) with “LAnderson”. So if it reads JUST Anderson, it’s not mine! Sounds like an interesting piece!
      All my best,
      Lynne
