  1. The firing "tree" I use for my wood fired raku is made of steel mesh. It was bent into a triangle shape and wired to the base.  I've used it for at least a a half dozen wood firings.  It has warped slightly with use.                                                                                             I like using a "tree" because it allows me to pull all of my little pieces out of the kiln at the same time.

      Great idea!

      I guess my idea of raku involved grabbing pots and placing them in various reduction stuff but the tree is a  really practical solution to firing little bits not going down that path. Love it and your bits

  2. Just posted an experiment displaying copper raku glaze outdoors after it was sealed with a clear UV rust oleum spray. 

  3. what kind of a sealer can be used to slow oxidation of copper raku?

      I edited my earlier post. I said krylon fixative should be clear coat.
