We are excited to add Raku to our offerings of ceramics courses here at LPCCA. Artisan Mike Edwards is conducting a one-day firing workshop on April 29 from 10a-2p. Raku usually involves removing pottery from the kiln while at bright red heat and placing it into containers with combustible materials. Once the materials ignite, the containers are closed. This creates an intense reduction atmosphere which affects the colors in glazes and clay bodies. The drastic thermal shock also produces cracking—known as crackling since it is deliberate. Students will be provided with a bisque fired Raku pot to glaze and put through the firing process. This pot goes home with the student. Due to the extreme temperatures of the items during the firing process this class will be limited to ages 18 and up.
New Dates Coming Soon
