DIY Raku Planters

diyrakuplanters.jpg

Raku a traditional oriental technique of firing ceramic pottery is both beautiful and technical achieving very exciting effects such as cracking the surface, metallization, iridescences and stains of different colors. With this DIY, we imitate one of the effects of raku: the craquelure. Using pre-fired terra cotta and paint we can achieve the same organic and earthy qualities.

Instructor: Laura Cott of LaCott Fine Art

Laura Cott is artist + owner of LaCott Fine Art living and working in Western New York, based out of a studio in the city of Buffalo. Cott grew up in Western NY and graduated from Buffalo State College with a Bachelor in Fine Arts degree in painting. She works closely with other creative minds in her community to pursue the teaching of the arts in WNY while pursing her passion to create, paint and make everyday. It was through trail and error that she came across her mug painting process as well as her Mixed Media Painting style. Like anything in life, the best things come unexpectedly. Her  pieces create an opportunity for people who may not seek out traditional fine art, capture a piece of it in their everyday life, like drinking a cup of coffee.

Cott’s art is driven from natural surroundings and the visual storytelling of the interaction of light, line and color. She works primarily with paint and non-traditional materials.  Her philosophy toward creating work is based on that everything is a product of creative experience. These artistic choices convey stories of atmosphere and emotion through expressive line, color, free brush work and texture.
