Raku, by John Mathieson

Raku has long been popular among potters. It is exciting to stand around a fire, watch pots turn red hot, and finally see the final result. The very uncertainty of the results is one of the things that draws so many potters to raku.

In this book author John Mathieson discusses the clays and glazes that are suitable for raku. He also examines kilns and burners, and firing and post-firing reduction. Along the way he looks at the raku of an international group of artists. The result is a handy and inspirational guide to this most exciting of firing methods and a book that ceramic artists of any level are sure to love.
