Raku Pottery

Raku Pottery Bowl

Raku Pottery is an old Japanese technique used for their traditional Tea Ceremony and means the Enjoyment of drinking tea in a handmade raku cup. The ritual was part of their social contact and a way of communicating. ​The forms are uninhibited and natural, while still being robust and simple without appendages so that they are resistant to thermal shock. They are fired once or twice on an open fire not exceeding 1000 C. The clay remains porous and receptive to the magical absorption of smoke after it has been adorned with crystallized glass colored with metallic acids.
