Raku is a firing technique developed in Japan for making teacups in the 16th Century. The uniqueness of Raku firing is in its process of heating clay to a high temperature followed by rapidly cooling to cause the glaze to crack and create metallic colours in its finish. In this 5-day course, Patrick will spend the first two days at Arts Underground instructing students on how to build their vessels with clay; the final three days will take place at his studio Raven Pottery for the unique glazing and firing processes. Some experience with clay is recommended.
