    Raku Art Techniques. Raku Workshop. William K Turner - Artist Bio. Shipping & Returns. Contact Us. Home; Magic of Raku; Magic of Raku This page is about the process of Raku firing. Raku firing is one of the most exciting and rewarding ceramic processes. The more you fire the more you learn. There are so many factors that go into how your piece.   The introduction of more controllable, efficient and portable ceramic fibre kilns made this technique more accessible to potters and the popularity of raku has grown rapidly in recent years.

    Raku ware (楽焼, raku-yaki) is a type of Japanese pottery traditionally used in Japanese tea ceremonies, most often in the form of chawan tea bowls. It is traditionally characterised by being hand-shaped rather than thrown, fairly porous vessels, which result from low firing temperatures, lead glazes and the removal of pieces from the kiln while still glowing hot. At Raku Art Inc. I produce raku fired ware on over different shapes (vases, bowls, candlesticks, and sculptures) that can be created in several different Copper Matte glazing techniques. Each piece is unique; no two raku pieces will ever be the same. Each piece is signed and dated by the artist.

    Piepenburg gives a great introduction into the history of Raku, where it originated, the Raku families, and the ties to the Japanese Tea Ceremony. Sprinkled throughout the book are excellent examples of Raku artwork from a variety of artists. A wide variety of shapes, . The Raku Museum is the unique specialisitic museum of Raku ware exhibiting a collection of Raku pieces handed down by the Raku family, a ceramic dynasty of years' history and making further studies on this subject.
