I absolutely love raku-fired pottery. Since I don’t own a kiln, nor am I a pottery artist, trying to capture the essence of them in a painting was my goal. The paintings is on 24” x 24" x 1.5" museum quality gallery wrapped canvas. It is wired and ready to hang. I used asphaltum and bronze colored acrylic paint only, mixing them to achieve a very earth-rich color and feeling. The texture is created with acrylic mediums. Raku means "enjoyment", "comfort" or "ease" in Japanese. I added frames in some of the images to give an idea of how they could look if framed (they are sold unframed).
This piece can be purchased with Yin and Yang I to make a diptych.
