A fun workshop where participants learn about making objects in raku clay - pinching, coiling, slab construction will be taught. Students who know how to work on the wheel are welcome to work with this also.  Make up to 5 pieces for the raku firing which is included in the workshop.  10 lbs of clay, glazes and firing included in fee.

The second part of the workshop where participants experiment, glaze, fire and post-reduce their clay works for a plethora of different effects on their works.  Participants fire and remove their clayworks putting them into trash cans full of combustible materials.  IT'S HOT!

Raku Pottery was developed in Japan in the early 1500’s as the Ceremonial Tea Ware of the Zen Buddhist Masters. The word Raku signifies enjoyment of freedom. It was preferred by the Masters because of its humility, tasteful unpretentiousness, simple naturalness, and its deliberate avoidance of luxury...all very important to the Zen philosophy.

According to the Zen Masters, its elusive, subtle, yet vigorous beauty is Raku's worth. It is valued because it is believed that the Spirit of the Maker is embodied in the form and revealed at the foot, which is traditionally left naked (unglazed). It is believed that if we are alert to ourselves, in contemplating the Raku form, we will recognize in it our own Spirit and Meaning.  Taught by Steve Liggett
