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/
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
