About This Activity

In this hands-on workshop students learn to decorate and fire using Westernized raku methods using combustible materials to create striking glaze results that vary depending on the way the flames and oxygen react to create vibrant colors and/or crackle effects. Westernized raku firing is low fire, and decorative only. Pots should be for decorative, non-food uses. Sculptures and decorative pottery forms are best, but any bisque fired pieces will work. There will be a thirty minute break for lunch, so bringing lunch or having it delivered is preferred to eating off site. Bring 5-10 small to midsize pieces or three large pieces to fire. All glazes and materials will be included. All work must be bisque fired prior to the workshop. For safety and comfort, wear natural fibers clothing and closed toe shoes. No synthetic clothing or open toe shoes and sandals. Flame, water, and soot will likely create a dirty and smoking experience, so wear clothing that you will not mind getting dirty and possibly stained. Instructors: Doug Tobin, Julia Burns
