'The Thin White Duke' Raku Lightning Bolt
This is an exclusive Collaboration between Maria Primolan and BowieGallery.com, we have added some unique techniques and colours to each and every Bolt we have designed. The end result is that no piece will be identical due to the Raku process, every piece has been hand made and is truly unique.
This Lightning Bolt Sculpture is inspired by David Bowie's 'The Thin White Duke' a simple statement piece which brings emphasis to the cracks caused during the Raku process.

The Sculpture remains white after the first fire and is colored after the second fire.
During the Raku process some small cracks or little black points appear on the sculpture, this adds beauty and character and with this technique it makes every piece unique. The Raku process creates very strong sculptures with the differing high fire temperatures used when creating this piece.
After first fire colour is added, then added to the sculpture is the “glaze” and it is put in the second kiln. Until it hits 970 degrees. Then we can open the kiln and put the sculpture on a “bed of leaves, wooden dust..” and cover for 2-3 minutes, here the chemical reaction occurs, then the sculpture is unveiled and we discover the final product, and finally it is polished.
