The raku ceramic technique was first developed in Japan during the 16th century. This firing process, although modified, has gained popularity with ceramic artists of the West because of the spontaneity and drama inherent in the process. Ware is rapidly fired and removed from the kiln while hot and placed into containers of various combustible materials. Once the materials ignite, the container is quickly covered and the ware is allowed to cool in the smoky atmosphere of the container. The combination of specially formulated glazes and the raku firing process result in exciting colors, surfaces, and metallic luster effects.
Students and faculty at Brockport demonstrated the technique during the College's 29th edition of Scholars Day.
