The Thin White Duke – Raku Mask with Bronze Hair (David Bowie) By Maria Primolan
Process by Maria: During raku process some small cracks or little black points make on the pieces, it is crackle process, it is normal, it is the beauty and the characteristic of this technique that makes the pieces unique. The raku process is very strong with strong changes of temperature on the piece.
After first fire I color the eyes and the lips by ceramic color, then I put the sculpture on “glaze” (cristallina). Then I color the hair by oxide colors, copper, iron and I put in the second kiln. Until 970°C-980°C degrees. I open the kiln and I put the sculpture on “bed of leaves, wooden dust..” and I cover, here it happens chemical reaction, then I discover, and I polish.
