Raku Pottery with Kim Ellington

Experience the excitement of Raku!  Originating in 16th century Japan as part of the traditional tea ceremony, the modern western version of Raku involves removing the hand built or wheel thrown pottery from the kiln while red hot and placing it in combustible material for cooling.  The results are often unpredictable and spontaneous with a typical firing cycle of 20 minutes or less.  Upon completion students will have a working knowledge of making, glazing and firing pottery.  Students of all skill levels are welcome.  No class 3/29/16.
