About the event
Raku is a dramatic, fast, and exciting alternative firing technique! Red hot pieces are removed from the kiln and placed in a reduction chamber filled with combustible materials to create flashes of color in the glazes, and beautiful crackle effects embellished by the smoke in the reduction chamber.
This is a free event intended for studio members who have done a Raku firing before, or want to give it a shot, glazes will be provided, so bring over your pots and let's have a nighttime raku firing! We will do around 3-4 firings, or until we're tired and it's 9pm. Feel free to bring 2-4 pots to get them raku fired. Bond Brothers is next door so feel free to stop by for a drink there while we're at it!
