Raku firing is one of the most exciting processes in ceramics. It’s a low-fire method in which we heat the ware, remove the ware from the kiln when the glaze has melted (at around 1000°c), and perform post-firing reduction to the piece. The post-firing phase is usually an immersion in an organic combustible material to affect the final outcome on the glaze (the craquelè) and the raw clay. This process blackens raw clay and causes crazing in the glaze surface.

The way we do it? a Week end dedicated to cooking, friends, food and workshops for those who want to learn how to raku their pieces. Our PM Stan takes care of all the technical details. Thanks to him all raku firings we do are well organized and safe!
