Raku pottery is created in a sophisticated process which generates amazing colours and shine. The Raku process is exciting and unpredictable, it is nearly impossible to get the same results twice. Raku is removed from the kiln at 1,800 degrees F. and placed in a reduction chamber containing sawdust and paper, where it immediately catches on fire. It is then covered over and left to "reduce" (causing a lack of oxygen). The result is pottery with iridescent, crackle and metallic colours not found in other forms of pottery.
