Raku as we know it today is an adaptation from the ancient Japanese method for quickly firing pots. It consists of placing bisque-fired vessels into a raku kiln (one that can be opened while still very hot). They are fired up to around 850C before being placed in a reduction chamber, where oxygen is eliminated and then placed in water to cool. The thermal energy is evident on the surface of the vessels after they are scrubbed clean. There are several techniques within the raku genre such as Naked, Sagger Fired and Obvara.
