Raku Firing Workshop
Your New Masterpiece
Raku is a type of Japanese pottery traditionally used in Japanese tea ceremonies that dates back thousands of years, most often in the form of tea bowls. Fairly porous vessels are made in one class, and once dried and bisque fired, in a second class the pieces are glazed and fired outside in a Raku kiln. Pieces are then removed from the kiln while still glowing hot before placing the ware in a container filled with combustible material which is a traditional Raku practice. This treatment encourages the beautiful crackles that appear on the glaze.
Courses & workshops by arrangement.
