But when the technically skilled and highly creative artists turn to raku, they explore and experiment to take the medium to an inspiring level. This updated and revised Ceramic Arts Handbook edition of Advanced Raku Techniques contains information on forming, glazes and glazing, kiln construction and firing, as well as inspirational stories from some of the most influential raku artists working today. For any potter who has experienced the excitement and immediacy of the raku process, this book is a must.

  • Raku Wall Art Tree of Life

    eremy Diller has created a piece of wall art in the form of a heart. There is a copper hook on the back so you may hang this pretty heart on the wall. This Raku pottery tree of life is formed from raw clay. It is painted by hand, then fired in an outdoor kiln to 2,000 degrees. Red hot, it is plunged into a pit with mesquite shavings lighting a blaze. The flames engulfing this piece of art give it its unique flashes of color, making it one-of-a-kind. Only the strongest survive the trial by fire. Designed and signed by Jeremy Diller of Tecate, CA. Note: every piece of raku pottery varies slightly. The firing process, and the fact that each piece is hand-molded means each is one-of-a-kind!

  • American Made Elliptical Horsehair Pottery Vase in White

    This striking vase is skillfully crafted using a modern Native American pottery method to create compelling series of intricate black lines in the clay when fired, caused by residual carbon from actual horsehairs. The random, almost electric, effect is quite magnetic - we're drawn to take a closer look! The thick elliptical shape and thin black lip provides the elegant white vase with contemporary appeal, perfectly accenting any home or office. Handcrafted in Florida. Each vase is individually thrown and shaped by hand- slight variations in the color, shape, and surface may be present. Recommended for decorative use or dried flowers only, due to the porous characteristics of the crackled glaze and clay body.

  • Handmade Culture: Raku Potters, Patrons, and Tea Practitioners in Japan

    Handmade Culture is the first comprehensive and cohesive study in any language to examine Raku, one of Japan’s most famous arts and a pottery technique practiced around the world. More than a history of ceramics, this innovative work considers four centuries of cultural invention and reinvention during times of both political stasis and socioeconomic upheaval. It combines scholarly erudition with an accessible story through its lively and lucid prose and its generous illustrations. The author’s own experiences as the son of a professional potter and a historian inform his unique interdisciplinary approach, manifested particularly in his sensitivity to both technical ceramic issues and theoretical historical concerns. Handmade Culture makes ample use of archaeological evidence, heirloom ceramics, tea diaries, letters, woodblock prints, and gazetteers and other publications to narrate the compelling history of Raku, a fresh approach that sheds light not only on an important traditional art from Japan, but on the study of cultural history itself.
