I was recently browsing pictures of raku pots and saw some done by a potter named Tim Scull. He inlayed copper wire in the pots. I liked the concept and effects that he got from it. What I was wondering is 1) at what stage do you think he inlayed the copper wire? (during the greenware state and fired it on the pot or after glazing it and just wrapping it around the pot when rakued? Anyone have any thoughts or ideas? 2) Does copper wire give some type of green colored effect on the pot? b/c I noticed were he wrapped the wire there was green near it. Anyone know at what temp copper wire melts? I guess it doesn't get completely hot enough to completely melt the wire when rakued?
