Raku is a firing technique during which the pot is removed from the kiln at around 1000 degrees Celsius and put into a container with combustible materials when red hot. This is left there to be starved of oxygen, which brings out some lustrous metallic colours in the glaze. All the pieces in this collection are fired using this method.
