When I started exploring the textured lithium glaze on raku-fired pieces, I was amazed by the visual and tactile experience they offer. After testing the blue lithium glaze on different shapes, and at different values, I am now exploring more earthy tones.
As I gaze at the pieces, I realize they transport me to a different time and place. The deep blue seems to belong to the depths of the ocean, or the dark outer space. The textured green takes me to an ancient, mossy landscape in the fog of the highlands of my native Vietnam. The textured brown seems to have been rusting, over centuries, in a sunken ship.
