Raku Fired Horse Hair Pot

This is another pot that I fired last weekend. I'm real happy with the horse hair markings.
I applied terra sigalatta to this pot when it was leather hard and then buffed it to a high sheen. I bisque-fired this to cone 04, which was too hot, but I was filling my kiln with 04 bisque pieces and this one filled up the kiln.
The result of the higher heat was the loss of some of the sheen of the burnishing but I'm still happy with the results.
