Christine Davis - Raku Pottery

My works are all wheel thrown and Raku fired. They are all my original designs and are made totally by myself.

Raku is a glaze firing process which involves pieces being brought up to 1900 degrees in a small gas kiln. At that temperature the pieces are taken from the kiln and placed in separate cans filled with combustible materials. As these cans burst into flames they are lidded and the pieces remain in the reduction atmosphere. When cool they are removed. Raku results vary from shiny copper to green, blues or golds.

I have a Bachelor of Arts degree from Indiana University. I have been working in the art world in various mediums since my college days. I have been totally involved in Raku fired ceramics for the last fifteen years. I create my work in my studio at my home and at the Indianapolis Art Center.

I have been involved in many central Indiana exhibits and the Hoosier Salon. My works are displayed in several Indiana galleries and I am a founding member of Art IN Hand, a cooperative art gallery, formed in 2000. I have been displaying and selling my work at art fairs in the Midwest area for the last four years.
