I do Raku pottery and add horsehair to each piece- Underglazes are added to the pot before it is bisque fired-A clear glaze is used on the pot so the underglaze colors will come through- After the hot pot comes out of the glaze kiln horsehair is added creating a carbon trail design. When my Raku pots dry I spray them with colored underglazes. After bisque firing, I paint a clear glaze on the pot; this allows the underglaze color to come through, When the hot pot comes out of the glaze kiln I put it in a bucket of sawdust then apply horsehair.
