Enrol in Pottery - Experimental Raku & Related Firing Techniques
Course Code: ARTS2600
Previous advanced level Raku experience or permission of the instructor is required.
This advanced level experimental exploration of Raku is designed to build on previously learned Raku firing skills. Explore the interactions that occur when combining Raku with other related firing techniques such as smoke firing, Saggar firing, and Obvara, using diverse decorating techniques. Experimental in nature, this course provides an opportunity to discover new forms and paths of creative expression that push and extend the boundaries of conventional Raku. Please bring 8 bisque-fired pieces in Raku clay. These pieces should be work that you are willing to experiment with freely, with an open mind to expand your existing knowledge and understanding of Raku. A maximum class size of 12 ensures individual attention.
