Raku Ware

Raku is named after a Japanese style of pottery, which is created by hand without a mould, and is fired in open flames. The result of this technique is unpredictable textures, patterns and vibrant colours. Originally developed by a single family in 16th century Japan, Raku has become immensely culturally significant and a revered art form across the world.
