Raku is a Japanese style of pottery first made during the 1580s. The practice is characterized by removing the pottery from the kiln at the height of the firing and causing it to cool very quickly. My process involves taking the pots from the kiln and quickly transferring them to metal garbage cans with paper or other combustibles and sealing them tight while the glaze oxidizes. Then the pots are plunged into cold water to finally arrest the colors.
