Raku Pottery Singular in Beauty, Timeless in Elegance

My Golden Raku Pottery is a singular pottery using a firing technique
dating back to 16th century Japan. During the 1950-60’s,
this ancient art of Raku was given a Western twist
by legendary artist, Paul Soldner, among other artists.

Following this “East Meets West” Raku combination, I use a white crackle glaze and fire my work in an outdoor kiln to just about 1800 degrees.

Using long metal tongs, I remove the red-hot pottery then place it into a fire-proof chamber containing combustible materials. The heat causes the combustibles to ignite into flames. The container is tightly covered, and then serendipity goes to work.

The smoke of the combustibles is absorbed by the unglazed clay, and into the crackels of the glaze. With the often unpredictable fires of Raku, my goal is to create unique pieces of art that are truly treasures of grace and beauty.

All of my work is individually handmade on a pottery wheel, and raku fired by me resulting in unique, one-of-a-kind vessels. No pre-made molds are used.

Thank you for touring my shop. Feel free to contact me with any questions about my work, delivery procedure, my personal guarantee of customer satisfaction or any other questions about Golden Raku Pottery.

Warm Regards,
