Raku has long been a popular technique amongst potters.
There is an excitement about standing around a fire, watching pots heat, the smoking sawdust, and finally the tense expectancy of seeing the final result.
The very uncertainty of the results is one of the things that draws so many potters to raku.In Raku, John Mathieson discussed the clays and glazes that are suitable for this technique.
He also discusses kilns and burners, and firing and post-firing reduction.
Along the way he takes a look at the work that is being done in this field by an international group of artists.
The result is a handy and inspirational guide to this most exciting of firing methods.
