Dudley Anderson is known for wheel-thrown raku-fired stoneware pottery. Surface techniques include chattering, a method used to create deep surface texture in the leather hard stage, and sprigging.

The finished surfaces often juxtapose brightly colored Raku glazes with raw blackened clay. Raku glazes formulated to produce the random and unpredictable surfaces of traditionally fired Raku are commercially available and can be fired in gas, electric kiln or Raku Kiln.
