Raku pottery was developed in Japan about 500 years ago by a Korean potter
named Ameya. During the firing, the
pieces are removed from the kiln while red hot and reduced in burnable
materials such as sawdust, leaves, or paper. This leaves an exciting,
highly unpredictable surface.
be aware that all raku pieces are unique and results may vary. Raku pottery
is very porous and cannot hold fluids or be used for dinnerware.
