Raku Firing at Bundeena - Unload and into reduction

This is the exciting part of any Raku firing.... so some safety precautions needed.  Heat proof gloves, long handled tongs, face masks to protect eyes and lungs from fumes and ash.

Team Work
Hot, hot, hot!


Work needs to be removed quickly but carefully


This big old case held the sawdust for the reduction




The hot pots are placed on the sawdust and some more sawdust is placed on top

Safety gear definitely needed when adding the extra sawdust

Wet newspaper is placed around the edges to minimise smoke
