    I see that there is no forum for ceramics and pottery. If there is anyone here who is a ceramicist or potter, lets take about raku!

    Yes lets...... I don't know much about it though. I saw a few examples on another forum recently. How do you create it?

          Do you think that out of most crafts pottery is the one that you can earn the least money?

          Raku is a japanese technique where you take the quickly fired pot out of a small kiln at 600 - 1000 degrees and plunge it in combustable material to produce mind blowing effects;


          Copper can go any color that exists, no way of producing this effect in any other way.

                raku

                Hi, well I have done a bit of raku, but I wasn't pleased with the results.
                What do you do pottery wise ?

                  I realise that this is really old but I would be interested to hear more if anyone has any opinion on Raku.

                  Plus the book name would be much appreciated

                            I've only just come across this forum so I might be a little late in replying to this thread.

                            You will find some information about Raku (glazes, firing technique, kiln building etc) on my website.

                            As I haven't made 25 posts I can't post the URL on the forum but if you pm me I'll let you know the site address.

                              I was trained at Loughborough Uni of Art and Design and attneded many seminars from some famous names.
                              We spent time in all disalplined trowing Dave Scott Walter Keeler coiling Martin Lewis Magdlane Odundo, I did sip casting hand building and all firing techniques. We had lots of visiting lectures too many to mention we did Salt firing and Raku. I hope next year to set up my new studios and gallery in southern Spain as an artist retreat, Wish me luck
