Raku: a process by which pottery is fired at a relatively low temperature and then moved while hot to a closed container with combustible materials (as paper or sawdust) that ignite and cause a reaction creating colors and patterns in the pottery’s surface.  also: Pottery produced using this process.
What to expect:  The first two days of this four session Raku Workshop will be hand-building pieces to prepare for a raku firing.  Explore the fun and variety hand-building with clay allows.  The third day the hand-built pieces will be glazed with lustrous raku glazes.  Finally the fourth session will be the fun and addictive raku firing.
