This class will focus on Raku firing, an alternative firing process where ware is removed from the kiln
at 1845*F and either placed in a “reduction chamber” or decorated with carbon-based materials which
will give smoky colorations and patterns. The results are atmospheric and difficult to control, making it
an exciting and dynamic process. Students will be able to take their pieces home with them after the
workshop. Health & Safety - Protective gear (gloves & tongs) will be provided, but students will need
to wear closed-toed shoes, have long hair tied back, and avoid loose-fitting clothing which may get
caught on items in the kiln yard.
