Raku Firing

Join us for a day of unpredictable and exiting results, good food (its pot-luck), and an exchange of creative knowledge and ideas!

Raku Firing pottery goes through an extreme Japanese firing technique that produces unique and unusual results.  Temperature differences make it much more likely for the pots to crack in a Raku firing than in more a common firing process.The risks are part of the fun when every result is one of a kind. As a potter, one lets go of control and expectation to welcome the freedom and inspiration of this ancient, primal firing.
