Salmon, Heron and Fern seared into the elemental iridescence of Dave Deal's taming of fire bring the Pacific Northwest's ecology alive in our Yellowleaf Raku Urns. Dave's active participation in the firing process - complete with fire suit as seen in the photo below - seems to fit the work of shaping a vessel that will hold cremated remains.
About the Artist
"Dave & Boni Deal live and work at their Livingston Mountain home in the Cascade foothills of Southwest Washington State. There they caretake a 160-acre tree farm and live a rustic rural lifestyle, enjoying the beautiful wonders of God's creation. Dave creates the clay forms on his potter's wheel or with a slab-roller. Boni draws Pacific NW images onto the damp clay surfaces and helps with other surface designs. Dave does most of the glazing, the bisque firing, and the dramatic raku glaze firing."

Customized pieces may take as much as 3-6 months to create, depending upon backlog.
