About raku ceramics

In the old times, the Japanese sought peace and harmony by surrounding themselves with beautiful objects. One of the virtues of raku ceramics is its very beautiful surface.
Raku means tranquility and harmony.

After the object, such as a pot, is shaped by the ceramic clay, it is burnt in an oven at a temperature of 1000 degrees Celsius. Afterwards, it is glazed and put back in the oven - this time at 900 degrees Celsius.

The glaze is smelted after approx. 20 minutes. The pot is taken back out of the oven and swung back and forth to create cracks. After the aeration, the pot is placed in a sealed container with sawdust – a process that enhances the beautiful colours and creates a unique and exciting glaze. The oxygen is pulled out of the clay and the cracks a beautiful scenery. One last effect is achieved by putting the glowing pot in a water bath.

Weather, wind and method of burning greatly influences the outcome of each burning but the unpredictability of the outcome makes raku a particularly exciting artform that is now more frequently used in Western European arts & crafts.
