Decorah Area Chamber of Commerce - Event Information

Event Name:Raku Firing
Event Type(s):Community Event

Raku firing is an exciting ceramics-firing technique in which you quickly heat a piece of pottery, remove it from the kiln when the glaze has melted, and place it in a bucket of wood shavings, which can be explosive! Ceramic artist Laremy Ellsworth will cover the entire process of Raku firing, from preparing the piece for glazing to cleaning the piece after the firing. You’ll learn about how different glazes react to this unique firing process to result in striking effects and one-of-a-kind pieces. Best of all, you’ll create your own piece to take home. Once you’ve completed the class, you’ll understand why ‘Raku’ translates to ‘enjoyment.’
