Raku

Raku pottery is derived from a unique firing process that involves placing a glazed piece of pottery into a very hot kiln until it reaches the desired temperature (approximately 1750 degrees), then with the use of thongs removing the red hot pottery from the kiln and placing it into a container with combustible materials inside then tightly closing the lid to achieve a reduction environment.
