This summer I taught a series of Raku workshops twice a week for 6 weeks, along with two additional workshops this fall.  Below are some photographs taken from those workshops at Bill Campbell's Studio in Edinboro Pennsylvania.  The workshops were split into two days per group.  On day one, we made coil bowls using clay molds.  We went over the history of how puki pots were used in Pueblo Indian pottery, and how it related to the building process we were using to create our own pots in the workshop.  In between classes I fired the student work, and on day two, we glazed and fired the bowls using the Raku firing process.

I dug through an absorbant amount of gunk to find the missing piece to this lovely bowl.  The things you do for your students!
