New Horsehair Raku

After having so many of the pots I've pulled out of my kiln at 1500 degrees crack, I started experimenting to see what would be the lowest temp I could pull the pots out and get good results with horsehair raku. These pots are my latest. Fired to 950 degrees I started applying some of the horsehair while the pots were still in the kiln. This left very bold dark lines. I then pulled the pots and applied more horsehair to some of them which left a much softer line.
