Recently have been experimenting with clay from my own local PipeClay Lagoon. Clay was dug, made into tiles, Raku fired and then placed back into the water at Pipeclay Lagoon. Some tiles were glazed with an iron glaze and some were left bare. The glazed ones resulted in a quite lovely red and a slight green in the corners the unglazed ones showed more of a pinky apricot ranging to grey. Once the finished tiles were immersed in the salt water the colours in the tiles became startlingly brilliant. Resulting in some beautiful photos!
