RAKU Night

Regular price SFr. 270.00
Date:
Join us for a unique RAKU firing experience. This ancient rapid firing technique developed in Japan allows to influence the ceramic piece during the firing process. By a significant and rapid temperature shock followed by smoking in the sawdust, the glaze - vitreous coating previously applied to the piece - cracks and reveals random patterns.
In this workshop you will start by glazing a pre-made KLAYIT vase with our selection of Raku coating. The pieces will then be fired in an kiln up to a temperature of 1000 degrees. During the time necessary for the temperature to rise (about 1 hour), you can enjoy an aperitif and a few glasses of sparkling wine.
As soon as the kiln temperature reaches 1000 degrees the show begins. We will take the molten pieces out of the kiln and you will then discover the magic of Raku.

A KLAYIT vase included for Raku firings.

A few glasses of bubbles and nibbles are included.
