In the Studio with Ceramics Artist Terri Axness
Raku ceramics workshop at Muddy Creek Studio with local Baker County artist Terri Axness
Terri Axness is a Baker County native and Eastern Oregon provides the inspiration for her work. Best known for her landscapes, she also paints still life, portraits, and decoys works in a variety of mediums including pencil, oil, acrylic, watercolor, and clay. She is also well known for her ceramic pieces and sculpture which vary from humorous and whimsical to functional.
Much of her ceramics work is in the Raku style, which is a process in which work is removed from the kiln at bright red heat and subjected to post-firing reduction (or smoking) by being placed in containers of combustible materials, which blackens raw clay and causes crazing in the glaze surface.
