RAKU

line

by Angela Walford, small raku vessel, wood fired and reduced

Definition of raku

At its core, raku is a low-temperature firing method.

(A process by which pottery is fired at a relatively low temperature and then moved while hot to a closed container with combustible materials that ignite and cause a reaction creating colours and patterns in the pottery’s surface.)

My surfaces have evolved over time into something more subtle but still exciting to hold. This Turquoise raku glaze often blushes into subtle pinks, deep turquoise and bright greens depending on the glaze application and the reduction atmosphere.

A limited range is available now in my Seppeltsfield studio, Seppeltsfield Winery, Barossa, South Australia
