The Raku process
is exciting and spontaneous. After the pot has been bisque fired, it is glazed and fired to a temperature of around 1800f in a propane-fired raku kiln. It takes about a 30 minutes to reach temperature. It is removed from the raku kiln with specially designed tongs, while it is still glowing hot, and placed in a metal can filled with combustible materials. The heat from the pot ignites the material and the can is immediately sealed. The fire quickly uses all the oxygen in the can and draws it from the pot and metal rich raku glaze. This is called "post fire reduction" Reduction is what causes the wonderfully unique, unpredictable and spontaneous patterns of color and metallic lustres unique to raku. After 15 minutes or so in the reduction can, the pot is removed and dunked in water to "freeze" the shifting patterns. Protective clothing, gloves and eye protection are worn when handling the hot raku pots. The clay used for raku is specially designed to withstand thermal shock, most other clays would crack under the drastic temperature change.

If you'd like to learn more about Raku, I'll be teaching pottery at the CCLC soon.
