Course Code: ARTS1831
Please Note: Previous Raku experience or permission of the instructor is required to participate in this course.
This advanced-level professional development course is a challenging exploration of the technical aspects of various Raku effects. Topics will be systematically studied and results evaluated so that successful outcomes can be obtained at will. There will be a thorough study of effective firing and post-firing reduction techniques as they relate to Crackle, Carbonization and Terra Sigillata and Horse-Hair Raku techniques. These techniques will form the basis of obtaining successful results with the spectacular technique called Naked Raku or Shadow Crackle. There will be daily firings and, time permitting, Raku kiln design will be addressed. Please bring eight bisqued pieces using Raku clay. A maximum class size of 8 ensures individual attention.
