Come for two days and experience Raku as well as Saggar fired burnished pottery or sculptures. Raku is a 16th cent Japanese firing process closely associated with Zen Buddhism, and Burnishing with Terra sigillata slip knows many early cultures way of sealing and decorating clay pieces without the use of a glaze, Native American as well as ancient Greek and Roman potters burnished. We will burnish bone dry un fired pieces on Saturday and bisque them at SCS, once our bisque firing is going we will turn our attention to Cone 06 bisque work which we will glaze for Raku firings. We will do a bon fire firing of burnished work Sunday morning, and continue to Raku fire all of Sunday. I expect you will be able to do several Raku firings and go home with many wonderful pieces.
