A Raku firing demonstration was recently conducted at the White Bear Center for the Arts. The ceramic artwork was fired in a kiln up to a temperature of 1800 degrees and then a fiery reduction process was created by plunging the pieces into a bucket filled with wood chips or paper. The firing process produces unpredictable and unique glaze results in the finished work. — Photos by Paul Dols | Press Publications
