Event Description
“Raku, The Celebration of Fire”
Saturday, April 20th
5 pm

Come join us for an experiential evening in clay and in the celebration of fire. You will begin by selecting a bisque fired ceramic piece that you will make your own through surface application of glazes. The Raku kiln will be loaded for a quick firing. During the wait time, you will enjoy learning about the history of Raku and relish a welcomed glass of wine. When the kiln temperature is reached, the pots are then removed while still glowing red with heat. This is where the excitement begins and unpredictability happens! Pots are subjected to a post firing reduction by being placed in containers of combustible materials. This process blackens the raw unglazed clay and creates the gorgeous surface that is Raku fired ceramics. Head home in the dusk with a whirlwind of enthusiasm for a new experience and with your handmade pot in hand. Allow 3 hours for this experience.
