Raku is derived from an ancient Japanese method of firing. The pots are removed from the kiln when red hot and placed in a bed of peat moss, leaves, grasses or newspaper. The unique pattern of colours and metallic finish comes from the interplay of flames, smoke and rapid cooling. Due to the low-fire method, Raku is strictly decorative. No two pieces are ever alike. Each one of these potters use the same type of firing techniques, but their individual styles are vastly different and each piece is certainly one of a kind.
