Raku is the 16th century Japanese art of taking ceramics red-hot from the
kiln then tempering them with natural elements: fire, smoke, air and water.

The imperfections or scars left on the pieces from burning
pine needles, newspaper, wood shavings & the welding tongs, 
become the organic designs that make raku collectible.
The bare raku pottery is blackened from the primitive
oxygen reduction process while the glazes react in unusual ways.
The resulting patinas on glazed raku can change (oxidize)
 over the years adding to the aesthetic value.
 
Modern American raku is not used for food or water,
but orchids and air plants love the carbon infusion!
