Raku is a fun, exciting and unpredictable method of firing ceramics with unique and spontaneous results. Originating from Japan in the 16th century the word Raku means ‘Joy’ or ‘Happiness’ capturing the imagination and creating a celebratory event by engaging audiences of all ages and enthralling them with the magical transformation of materials through fire.
