Session 7: Raku, Monday Evenings
Raku is a low temperature, easily accessible firing method that can be used to create unpredictable and exciting ceramic surfaces. Work is removed from the kiln while it is still glowing hot and, and put into reduction chambers to result in varied surfaces in the glazes due to the atmosphere.
in this class, students will prepare work for unglazed raku (naked raku or horsehair) by using terra sig and slip, and make pieces for finishing with the studio glazes and post-firing reduction. Previous wheel or hand-building experience is needed, but students new to raku are welcome.
Note: as a group, students will select one or more days in the session in which to have a longer class for firings.
Mondays, 6:30-9:30 pm
