Raku is a fast firing process which began in 16th century Japan, where it was associated with the traditional tea ceremony. It involves working with a preheated kiln, in my case a small gas fired kiln. The warmed pieces, previously bisque fired to 1900 degrees F., and sometimes with glaze of a colorant (copper carbonate) added to the surface, are placed in the hot kiln and quickly fired up to a temperature sufficient to melt the glaze or fuse the copper to the clay body. At this point the kiln is shut off, the lid removed, and the very hot pieces are immediately removed using long steel tongs
