"Tim has invited me once again to write a short foreward. His first book on raku, published over ten years ago, was so well received and a must for all raku enthusiasts. This second book is a natural in-depth continuation and expansion from the first. It is well written, sensitive and full of careful research that has hardly been attempted by other. In RAKU Tim reveals the immense range and variety of technical and conceptual experimentation being attempted today; an open window to all the possibilities of raku being practised worldwide. I wonder if there is any other branch of ceramic technology that has had as much attention and developments that of raku in the last 50 years? It is in these 50 years that the raku first introduced to the West by my father Bernard Leach and Shoji Hamada in 1920, has undergone a radical conceptual change initiated by Paul Soldner and his followers in California." {David Leach}. This book has 224 pages and is profusely illustrated. N° de ref. de la librería 062163

Acerca de


The Japanese art of Raku, a challenging pottery firing

technique that uses fire and smoke to form unique patterns on

the glaze, has long been a favorite of ceramists. This

comprehensive overview of Raku explores the fascinating art

and its history in full detail.

Inside, readers will find information on the clay types used in

Raku and the subsequent firing process, as well as the glazes,

techniques and reproduction processes common to the art.

This new edition has been completely re-written and updated

with over 200 all new, full-color photos of beautiful Raku

pottery. It also contains an in-depth history of the origins of

Raku, its development over the last 20 years, and the changes

in techniques and perception of the art during that time.
