Creative Fun for Everyone! Raku with Ted Camp
January 12, 2018 6:30-9:00pm
When it comes to firing kilns, there is nothing more dramatic than firing raku at night! Raku has a long history originating in Japan, which involves firing clay objects very quickly (appx. 30 minutes) and extracting them from the kiln when the glazes become molten (around 1800 degrees!). The objects are then heavily smoked in trash cans where they develop dramatic, lustrous colors is the short space of about 8 minutes. Students participating in this event will apply glaze to pre-fired pieces, load and extract their pieces from the kiln to smoke them and at the end of the evening, take their glazed pieces home. The process is fast, exciting and the results are serendipitous and one-of-a-kind.
