Raku Kilns in the courtyard!

Its very busy in the court yard! There is  a Raku kiln in the courtyard all day, come and see our ceramicists at work!


Raku firing photos

here’s some photos of the kiln setting up and the work before it goes in. Apparently the kiln reaches 1000* Centigrade and at some point the work will be removed (whilst at this temperature!) and plunged into the silver dustbin which holds sawdust. I will ask Jim or Philippa to write a more accurate piece about the process later today.
