In this DVD, Gordon Hutchens provides options to potters who have mastered basic raku processes. Working shots capture each stage of the process, including clay preparation, glaze mixing and application, firing and post-firing techniques.
He demonstrates the use of slip resists, terra sigillata, saggars, found objects, fuming and a variety of glazes to create variations on traditional raku techniques.
Throughout this program Gordon, who has exhibited widely in North America and Japan, shares his reflections on his craft. Includes printed notes and recipes on the DVD menu.
"Most of this clear, well-photographed video is a straightforward explanation, although Hutchens does describe the pleasures of putting one's self and creative imagination into the pieces." - (Video Rating Guide for Libraries)
