Raku Ceramics (Grades 9-12)

Raku is a traditional Japanese fast-fire ceramic technique that is expressive and dramatic. Ceramic ware is heated until glass becomes molten then pulled from the kiln red-hot and placed in a container of combustibles for reduction and cooling.  Participants will be instructed on this historic process and will make projects that focus on basic hand building. Over the course of two sessions students will create a works that will be glazed and fired "raku." All tools and materials are provided; expect both to get dirty and have fun. Participants' parents will be required to sign a Waiver, Release and Hold Harmless Agreement due the nature of this art. Class will be taught by IPFW associate faculty member Brandon Furniss.
