2 Session Raku Workshop @ Tibetan Museum
Nov 9 @ 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm

This event takes places over two sessions.

Saturday Sessions are November 9 & 23.

Participants will create pieces during the first session, and will fire them two weeks later, with two different firing techniques: Naked Raku & Obvara.

Naked Raku is taking a previously fired pot and dunking it in specially mixed ceramic slip. The pieces are then placed in the kiln and slowly heated to a specific temperature. The slip will shrink as it dries and create cracks which transfers onto the clay as black lines.

Obvara is a technique that comes from Central Europe. Three days before the firing, a mixture of yeast, sugar and flour is mixed together and then sits until it’s time to fire the pots. Once the pots are heated to a specific temperature, they are removed from the kiln and dunked into the Obvara mixture for about 5 seconds and the surface immediately change to rich, dark browns. The pot is then dunked into another bucket of regular water to stop the process.
