The University I work for recently closed it’s ceramics program. As part of the process, we are going through all of the items left in the pottery building. When going through the building, I collected all of the Raku “Monks” which are small ceramic objects that have a monk-like sculpture the department created to test glazes.
I took a few of the monks and displayed them on my shelves in the office, but I still have quite a few that I need to find a home for.
The first home for one of the monks was created as an assemblage art style wreath made with bits and pieces I had in and around my house. I started with a wreath I had stored in the basement which had been spray painted brown, some dry lily stems that I pulled out of my yard, and left over lace.
Along with those items, I grabbed some old potpourri, buttons, and one of the monks. I’m pretty pleased with what I came up with as a finished product.
What would you do with a raku monk?
