pottery & art

 

 



 

 DAN LEONETTE - maestro & course leader

  • I started working with raku some 40 years ago in Santa Barbara, California. Since 1986, I live on the island of Gotland, Sweden, in Kräklingbo old dairy with my wife Kerstin. Here we have plenty of space for housing, pottery studio, gallery and our studios, where I also work as a painting artist.

  • We are open in the summer for tourists and art groups. In the gallery you'll find my paintings in acrylic, watercolor and pastel and every Thursday I show raku firing for anyone who wants to see! 

  • I now work exclusively with post-fired raku, matt coppers, naked raku and peel-off. I also burn other lowfiring techniques as sawdust and saggarfiring. I have also started with raku workshops for people who love raku as much as we do. The courses are preferably in spring and autumn. I demonstrate and teach my raku technique, coppar-matt, sawdust, saggarfired and peeloff.  READ MORE ABOUT WORKSHOPS
