Raku is an ancient Japanese firing technique where you fire your pieces in an outdoor kiln and pull the pieces out once the glaze has reached its melting point. The pieces are then placed in a metal can with combustibles and covered. This allows a reduction to take place creating metallic details and a crackle effect due to the thermal shock.
