Raku pottery, a low firing technique, has its roots in the traditional Japanese art of ceramics. In a Raku firing, pieces are removed from the kiln while at red hot temperatures and placed in a ‘cold kiln’ or containers consisting combustible materials for a post-firing reduction. The sudden change in temperature creates the sought-after cracking effect. A good Raku clay body is strong enough to withstand these drastic thermal shocks.
