Raku has become a popular way of fast-firing clay work to about 1860 degrees. Students will produce either handbuilt or wheel thrown work and apply special glazes to their bisque-fired work PRIOR to each class. During class, those pieces will be fired quickly and students will participate in removing their work from the hot kiln while the glazes are still molten. They will then place their work into smoking chambers where the glazes will develop a variety of surface and colored effects while cooling. Students will be exposed to regular and “naked” raku, obvara, and horse-hair techniques as choices for their surface patterns. Class fee includes 25 lbs of clay, glazes, and all firing.
