Phil Green began his pottery interest as a hobby about 15 years ago. After retiring from a career in high-tech, he got more seriously into working with his hands. His intrigue with Raku firing began early. As he worked with pots and hand-built pieces, he began seeing the possibilities when Raku glazes were mixed with conventional color glazes. He can’t recall why he made his first clock, but it was what he got hooked on.
These unique ceramic clocks are hand-carved in slabs of clay and then Raku fired. Special “high grog” clay is used to withstand the extreme thermal shocks during the process.
