  1. Hello, I am very interested in how you fire your raku tiles. Are they fired flat or on edge? I have done lots of underglaze sgriffito work in landscapes. I am going to raku some new ones. Do you have any suggestions on your landscape process? I have been a production potter for 42 years. This new direction is very exciting. Thanks, a potter friend in indiana.

    • Hi potter friend, I’m not raku firing anymore, but when I did fire tiles I did it both flat and on edge. The smaller ones (up to 6″) were fired flat on a rigged up BBQ grate — although it got really hard to find grates that weren’t teflon coated. The larger ones I stood up horizontally or vertically, facing the kiln wall, against a brick. They are tricky because sometimes the glaze matures on one end but not the other. But overall, I had good luck with the tiles. Do you have a website where I can look at your work? Laura

      • Thanks for writing back. I will send photos of my finished landscape tiles on wed. The ones that youll see are not raku. They are mostly scrafitto and diff colored clay bodys. Cone 6 electric. I am interested in your critique. Thanks again, terry dukeman, potter

Talk to me! I spend too much time alone in the studio.
