About this title


This text examines contemporary Raku work in the light of the 350-year-old aesthetic that led to its development. It explores how the details of this technique were communicated across continents, and explains the processes characteristic of Raku - crackle and lustre development. The book culminates in an analysis of the contribution made by Raku to practical and philosophical explorations into the nature of clay and fire, and is illustrated with images of new work and experiments with flame.

From Library Journal:

Raku pottery, developed in Japan for use in the tea ceremony, was popularized in Western countries by British potter Bernard Leach. It involves low-temperature firing and sudden cooling, often with uncertain results. In this beautifully photographed book Jones discusses the techniques and the Zen philosophy of raku, illustrating his text with his own works and those of other studio artists. No specific projects are included but all aspects of rakuDhistory, materials, and firingDare covered in great detail. This book is highly recommended for all decorative arts and crafts collections.
