Raku

Raku
Raku is a rapid fire process where metallic or crackle glazes are brushed onto a piece, then rapid fired in a special kiln to 1800 degrees. When at maximum temperature, the red hot pieces are pulled from the kiln and placed into a smoking chamber with paper, sawdust, and assorted dry twigs. The cans containing the pieces burst into flames, and the flame robs the oxygen molecules from the glaze, creating the unpredictable patterns on the resulting outcome. The result is never the same and always exciting.
