Raku Firing

Raku Firing

Sat | Feb 12 | 10:00 AM-4:00 PM
Ages: Adults (16+) | $90 | Larry Elardo

The raku technique is where you remove the glazed ceramic from a hot kiln and place it into a reduction environment to shock it and create a myriad of effects from the combustibles. Students will join Larry Elardo virtually or at Essex Art Center's clay studio to learn the history of the raku firing process. Essex Art Center will provide clay, bisque firing and glazes. Each student will be limited to 3 pieces with a maximum size of 6 inches in each direction. After forms are bisque fired and glazed students will join Larry Elardo and Lloyd Hamovit in Newbury, MA for a day of raku firing. Dress appropriately. Address will be given prior to the firing date. Weather cancelation date is Saturday, February 19th.
