Raku – demonstration of Raku firing and opening of the kiln
Raku is an old Japanese technique of ceramic firing, which was very ceremonial. The ceramics is fired at high temperature and at this temperature it is taken out of the kiln, what makes it different from other firings, where the pieces cool in the kiln. To get special effects, the pieces are taken out of the kiln and ‘socked’ by different ways for example water, sawdust etc. Each piece, which undertakes the Raku firing is unique. The artist, clay, glaze, fire and smoke make it special. Opening the kiln will be an exciting event.
