Raku: Fast and Furious Pottery
Raku is a traditional Japanese glazing technique that is “fast and furious”! Campers will start off the week learning to create pottery on the wheel and by hand. On Friday campers will glaze their pots and spend the day outside firing their work in our raku kiln. Once the pots are red hot they will be pulled out of the kiln and immediately tossed into buckets of sawdust and newspaper which helps to bring out the vibrant iridescence of the glazes.
