RAKU FIRING

Raku is a traditional outdoor method of firing pottery from Japan. It is a very exciting process involving placing red hot pots in sawdust to create wonderful metallic effects. My first raku was at the age of 4! I can still remember my grandfather helping me to make a simple clay mushroom and the firing on a hill farm in Pembrokeshire.

Here are photos of the AIC Raku from a couple of weeks ago
