Peter Levy

A mastery of the technique of Raku defines Peter Levy's  work, with its rich, crackled and smokey glazes. The technique involves  removing ceramics from the kiln during the firing process, whilst they are still hot causing them the glaze to craze. They are then placed into flammable material such as woodshavings or sawdust, which ignites and smoulders against the crazed glaze, thus creating distinctive effect.
