Raku EveningBack Search

Back

 

Raku firing is the high spot of the week and exciting even for those familiar with pottery.  Everyone is involved in stoking the kiln with wood, putting in pots, watching them mature in the flames, dropping the sizzling pots into hot water, and finally pouncing enthusiastically on their own pots when they are cooled.  Jacket potatoes, sausages and wine to wash away the smoke all add to a memorable evening.
