Raku firing is an exciting ceramics firing technique. It involves quickly heating a piece of pottery, removing it from the kiln when the glaze has melted and placing it in a bucket of wood shavings which can be explosive! Ceramic artist, Laremy Ellsworth, will cover the process of Raku firing from preparing the piece for glazing to cleaning it after the firing. You’ll also cover glazes and how the different glazes, put through this process, result in different effects and the creation of unique pieces. You will leave class with your unique work of art. After participating in this class you are sure to understand why Raku translates to ‘enjoyment’. Preregistration required $55 - includes $20 materials fee
