This is the finished cross that I made for a commission. Next to it is a Mazuzah, another commission. A mazuzah is a Jewish tradition, a container for a sacred text. I respect all spiritual paths and will accept commission work from any religious viewpoint: Christian, Muslim, Hindu, Zoroastrian, Judaic, Buddhist, Shinto, Druidic, Taoist, native American church, Pagan, Wiccan, shamanic, etc. Many paths can lead to the same goal of spiritual realization. All spiritual and religious traditions use art to communicate their beliefs and ideals. I believe in Art. Art and music are universal unifying forces in the world.

No sadly this isn’t clay. It’s food that’s made by a great artist my friend Rocelle. It’s a mango cheesecake and if you have a sweet tooth for mangoes like I do it’s absolutely devastating. Mahalo Nui Loa Rocelle

A big mahalo to Ian Beaty and family for visiting the studio and bringing along their GoPro camera! See video link below: https://youtu.be/MkGP5eCgbjg
Working on a commission for an 8” cross. This is the wet clay stage. It’s fun to experiment with new forms. This could become a regular creation from the shop. Judging by the response I got to this posting I think I’ll be making a number of these and posting them on my next Etsy sale. I had many inquiries.

We just completed a firing, it’s a three day process. We fire to 2300° with WVO (waste vegetable oil). It is a great renewable fuel and produces excellent results. A lot of great work in this batch. Some flaws, there’s always more to learn. The last platter in the video is a real masterpiece made by Renee. Work from this firing will be available in my Etsy store, search for the store name, ‘DeanMcRaine’ and favorite our store to be notified when new work is available.

"Bringing the summer colors into your life!" Aloha,
Announcing our first Etsy sale of the summer, Saturday, July 6th!
Warmer temperatures at LightWave studio have attracted schools of rainbow fish, some psychedelic nature, and inspiration in the form of new designs! I am experimenting with smaller blocks and have included some limited pieces in styles I call the "God's Eye" and the "Pineapple Series" (see bowls made from each style pictured). Items listed on Etsy will post at 1:00pm Pacific Daylight Time, Saturday, July 6th. The photos highlight some of the pieces that will be available for purchase. ***International shipping update***
In addition to the United States, I will be shipping to Japan, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, the United Kingdom, and all EU countries.
Thank you for your continued support and for joining me on this amazing trip!
