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.
