About Raku-Pottery

The Raku pottery of Robert Graydon is taken red hot from the kiln using tongs or gloves. He places them in a garbage can, or barrel, into a nest of straw, leaves, and pine needles. He then smothers the fire out by placing a lid on the container. Once they have cooled, they are removed, cleaned of ashes and burnt material, and are ready to be sold.

Originally Raku pottery is a type of Japanese pottery that is traditionally and primarily used in the Japanese tea ceremony in Japan, most often in the form of tea bowls.

Robert has adopted many of the Raku pottery techniques, in what is now a more American version to create "one-of-a-kind" pieces most of which he creates on the potters wheel and some are hand built from slabs or coils. No molds are used in his process. All pieces are signed and dated.


About Horse Hair Pottery

The horse hair firing method involves taking unglazed hand burnished pots hot out of a kiln and throwing horse hair on the hot pots. The hair shrivels up and burns black lines onto the white pottery. Learn more about the different pottery processes used in producing original works of art.

About Pit-Fired Pottery

Pit firing is one of the most primitive methods of firing, which involves putting unglazed burnished pots in a pit and burying them in sawdust, firewood and assorted other burnable organic materials. The resulting pile is set on fire from the top and allowed to burn for many hours until all of the fuel is consumed and the pots are removed from the ashes once they have cooled naturally.

The Pyramids on Mars are hills or mountains on the surface of Mars that, from a low resolution image, have near-perfect symmetry resembling that of the Egyptian pyramids. These formations are found in the Martian region known as Cydonia, an albedo feature that gained celebrity-like attention in the 1970s.
