About the Course
Raku ware is a type of Japanese pottery traditionally used in Japanese tea ceremonies, most often in the form of chawan tea bowls.
Raku Firing is a process in which ceramic work is removed from the kiln at bright red heat and subjected to post-firing reduction (or smoking) by being placed in containers of combustible materials, which blackens raw clay and causes crazing in the glaze surface. This Western raku firing process has a huge draw for many potters because of its excitement and unpredictability.
In the two Saturday Afternoon sessions you will make 3/4 ceramic pieces by hand on the first session using a hand building technique and on the second session you will decorate the bowls with Raku Glazes and fire them.
Your pieces will be ready to take home at the end of the second session.
