The Japanese art of Raku, a challenging pottery firing

technique that uses fire and smoke to form unique patterns on

the glaze, has long been a favorite of ceramists. This

comprehensive overview of Raku explores the fascinating art

and its history in full detail.

Inside, readers will find information on the clay types used in

Raku and the subsequent firing process, as well as the glazes,

techniques and reproduction processes common to the art.

This new edition has been completely re-written and updated

with over 200 all new, full-color photos of beautiful Raku

pottery. It also contains an in-depth history of the origins of

Raku, its development over the last 20 years, and the changes

in techniques and perception of the art during that time.
