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.
