RAKU ceramic made by E-Muu
When most potters in the West think of raku firing, they think of what should technically be referred to as "American" or "Western" raku: a process in which work is removed from the kiln at bright red heat and subjected to post-firing reduction (or smoking) by being placed in containers of combustible materials, which blackens raw clay and causes crazing in the glaze surface. This Western raku firing process has a huge draw for many potters because of its excitement and unpredictability.

Vase on the pictures I've made from white pottery clay, no mold used,
hand-thrown on kick wheel,
- final firing in an outdoor gas chamber kiln, 
- fired at ca. 1010 degrees centigrade,
- decorated with an array of colored glazes,
- total height ca. 18 cm.
