Raku Firing

w/ Lori Watts

Raku pottery is an ancient traditional method of firing ceramics developed by the Japanese. It is an exciting way to create unique decorative pottery. In this workshop, instructor Lori Watts, will guide students through glazing and firing in our Raku kiln at Portland Pottery Studio. Participants will assist with the firing and will polish off the soot and ash to unveil the smoke patterns and finished glaze. Participants should bring several pieces that are bisque fired and ready to be glazed. Tuition: $65.00 per person ($45 for students)
