Caption- Abstract Raku pottery has its roots in the production of bowls for 16th century Japanese tea ceremonies. Hand-molded clay was fired quickly to low temperatures, removed from the kiln while hot and cooled quickly in open air or water. The modern variations of Raku technique dispense with the lead glazes and have been extended in many ways. While preserving the low-temperature firing (approximately 1700 degrees Fahrenheit (925 degrees Celsius), and the quick cooling, many variations and enhancements have been introduced, including the use of wheel-thrown pieces, numerous lead-free glazes, and the optional use of a post-firing reduction phase. Reduction refers to the placement of the very hot piece into a container of combustibles (sawdust, paper, pine needles, etc.) which catch fire from the pot's intense heat. Once the flames are active, a lid is sealed over the container to cause the oxygen to be consumed causing chemical reactions in the glazes leading to often very colorful and widely-varied results. Raku is the family name of the original masters who created the tea bowls for the highly-formalized tea ceremonies.
