[ About Raku Pottery ]
The Raku ceramics tradition, a 16th-century Japanese pottery and firing technique, is closely linked to the ancient Japanese art of tea ceremony and the philosophy of Zen Buddhism. They share many similarities in their founding beliefs and intentions of practice, especially in how through poise and awareness we can connect to ourselves and our environment.
With Raku, one learns to relinquish one’s expectations to the uncertainty of reality. It is about the acceptance of the imponderables; finding the beauty in imperfection. It is a matter of acting at the present moment, of guiding and reacting, and giving chance space to unfold before our eyes. Creativity and improvisation give birth to some unique and surprising objects.
