RAKU
SKIP'S WORK

Process by which pottery is fired at a relatively low temperature and then moved while hot to a closed container with combustible materials (such as sawdust or paper) that ignite and cause a reaction creating colors and patterns in the potteries surface. Raku glazes can enhance the process. Horsehair and feathers can also be applied. This process was inspired by traditional Japanese Raku firings but with an added Western flair.
