Raku firing is the term given to a type of low-firing process that was inspired by traditional Japanese raku firing. Western-style raku involves removing pottery from the kiln while at bright red heat and placing it into containers with combustible materials such as straw, leaves etc. This is a very exciting pottery process that gives fast results and amazing effects.
