 Ancient Japanese Pottery Tradition

Tutor: Ed Cottam

Course content: Raku is an ancient Japanese traditional pottery.  It uses unusual techiques to produce beautiful pots with a great deal of serendipity involved which adds to the excitement.  Basically the pots, usually small bowls, are constructed from clay.  These pots are then fired and cooled in the kiln,  producing spectacular colours and flashes in the glaze.  Its great fun.
