The following ceramicists all share a passion for Raku which has its origins in the sixteenth century tea ceremonies of Japan. The American artist & potter Paul Soldner explored and developed his own variation of the Raku process in the 1960’s. Currently there are many approaches to this exciting art form.

Each participant in this exhibition has developed their own individual approach to Raku, which embodies a style of working that includes an attitude of mind and a way of thinking.

“Raku is a Japanese word that has been freely interpreted in the West as ‘enjoyment’.”
