In our studio we practice a variety of techniques to achieve works with distinctive aesthetic affect and appeal. We fire our pots at 1240 degrees, which makes them frost-proof, waterproof and more durable than traditional low-fire ceramics.
 

Raku: Japanese raku is a special technique that derives from the 16th century, and was originally applied to Japanese tea bowls. It is becoming more and more popular in Europe, too, because it can produce pieces that are absolutely one of a kind. In the original Japanese technique, hand built pots are taken out of the kiln at 1000 degrees. They are, than, either left outside for the air to cool or put in lukewarm water straight away. American raku applies a slightly different technique. After being taken out of the kiln, the glowing pots are put immediately into inflammable material (e.g. chip, straw, dry leaves, etc.) and are not subjected to air (atmosphere of reduction). Consequently, objects attain unbelievable surfaces and qualities that resemble prehistoric times.
