I hand make each piece of raku art one at a time...it's my passion. Thank you for taking this journey with me!

My name is Marianne Kasparian and my friends call me "MAK". I first fell in love with clay in high school (over 30 years ago). I went on to get a degree from the University of Maryland at College Park in Textile Marketing. I never knew that I could do what I love as a career! So now, after many years in the restaurant business, career counseling, and much soul searching, I am doing what I love, my passion! I have taken additional pottery classes along the years in Bethany Beach (DE), Sedona (AZ) and Phoenix (AZ). I have attended raku workshops with some of the raku masters...Steven Branfman, Jim Romberg, Eduardo Lazo, and David Roberts. I now live in Colorado Springs, CO with my husband, son, german shepherd, and 2 cats. I love the art of Raku. Love, love, love raku!!! It's so exciting to see the finished product! I hope you enjoy my work and can feel the love that I put into each piece.

    Hi, I'm Mak! I love anything down to earth, funky, and eclectic. My main focus has been on raku cabochons, beads, and pendants for talented jewelry designers to use in their creations. My German Shepherd, Obi, loves to help me! Hope you are inspired!

THE RAKU PROCESS:

Raku pottery was made long ago for Japanese tea ceremonies. It was modernized later into the process you see today. This involves taking a piece of pottery that has been bisque fired and glazed then firing it in a raku kiln (which my husband and I built ourselves). The piece is then fired to about 1800 degrees F and pulled out of the kiln while still red hot then placed in a reduction chamber containing organic materials such as newspaper, sawdust, leaves, etc. Smoke is created and reacts with the pot leaving the unglazed portion black (a very unique characteristic of raku). It's so exciting and creates one of kind colors which are very hard to duplicate. Please note that raku is not food safe nor is it intended to hold liquid.
