The next day we went over to Mudfire to visit the gallery and studio. Wally is very interested in doing a workshop there. It's been a few years since he was last there and he's come up with several new techniques for naked raku that sound really interesting and exciting. I've seen the results and they are beautiful. I'll let you know when that is scheduled.

Here's Wally with one of his favorite teapots from the exhibit. Yes, it's that little black and white one in front. Of course a man that is an expert in naked raku would like that one, besides it was really great. Sadly, the museum didn't have much info on the piece, just that it was salt fired and probably from Straffordshire, England.
It was a great weekend, I hope to do it again sometime soon.
