Dean McRaine’s ‘LightWave Pottery’ Creates Stunning Rainbows & Designed Patterns
I’m always fascinated how in the ceramics and pottery world there are still people coming up with new-to-me techniques – even though the art has existed for thousands of years!
Artist Dean McRaine owns LightWave Pottery in Kauai, Hawaii. McRaine specializes in psychedelic pottery, which he makes from colored clay rather than painting over fired works. His works start from multicolored slabs to transform into gradient, patterned blocks. McRaine’s intricate process may take up to two months per block, but he doesn’t have to decorate the pieces after they’re fired. See more from LightWave Pottery: https://lightwavepottery.com/

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
