Raku

Burning raku is always fascinating. The whole process of getting the fine tea bowls safely in – and out – of the redglowing oven, and further to the reduction in the bucket of sawdust that highlights characteristic fine crackles of the glaze is totally mesmerizing.

Might be that clothes and hair smells strongly afterwards, as if you’ve been sitting next to a campfire all day. But it is definitely worth it when your kitchen shelves burst with your own ceramic design.
