  • Raku (Ch)

    Raku has been a popular technique among potters for a long time - the roar of the fire, the glowing work, the dramatic results - are all part of the allure. But raku is more than just a technique, it's a way of thinking with an attitude of openness to the unexpected and willingness to use accidental happenings in developing your work. Raku encourages curiosity and exploration, and there's no end to the variety and quality possible in this medium. British potter John Mathieson provides a clear and concise overview of the raku process, covering all the essentials; clay types, post firing reduction methods, and equipment. You'll also enjoy the tips and techniques shared by 30 experts on topics spanning the entire raku process from conception to final reduction. The first four chapters cover the basics of raku including a brief history, a discussion of suitable clays, making and decorating techniques and some pointers on the importance of bisque firing. In the chapter on glazes and glazing, Mathieson demystifies raku glazes as he discusses colors, oxides, stains, copper matts, materials and soluble salts. And you'll find more than 50 glaze, stain and slip recipes in the appendix to get started with. In addition, there's a brief discussion about glaze application and the effect of...
