Raku Pottery is a type of Japanese pottery that is traditionally hand-shaped.  Low firing temperatures, lead glazes and the removal of pieces from the kiln while still glowing hot produce a finished product that is porous. Each piece of pottery is unique and finishes with variations in color and patterns. Raku Pottery is a type of Japanese pottery that is traditionally hand-shaped.  Low firing temperatures, lead glazes and the removal of pieces from the kiln while still glowing hot produce a finished product that is porous.

Raku Pottery is light sensitive and will fade over time, so be sure not to place your raku pottery in direct sunlight.

Sometimes cracking of the glaze occurs, or minor fissures appear on the surface of raku pottery.  This is a normal reaction caused by  the rapid change in temperature from a 2000 degree kiln  to a 70 degree environment.

* Occasionally, the raku may emit a mesquite aroma, which fades with time. * Small amounts of ash may be found on the surfaces of the pottery.
