raku is an old japanese technique of pottery that emits an air of cheeriness and well-being.

raku pottery is removed red hot from the kiln and cooled rapidly under a water hose. afterwards it is refined by placing it in a bed of sawdust.

the firing process often leads to unexpected structural alterations and colour effects. chance plays a significant role, which in turn means that each piece is unique.
