Thursdays 1:00-4:00

Raku's history goes back 600 years in Japan. Once revealed in the United States, it has become a popular way of fast-firing to a temperature around 1860 degrees. Using previously developed construction skills, 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 then remove 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 serendipitous variety of surface and colored effects unique only to raku while rapidly cooling. In addition, students will be encouraged to try naked raku, obvara, and horse-hair techniques as alternative choices to glazing for their surface patterns. Class fee includes 25 lbs. of clay, in house glazing and firing, MASK REQUIRED
