Raku Pottery - Robert Piepenburg


This is one of two Bibles of the Raku art world. Piepenburg gives a great introduction into the history of Raku, where it originated, the Raku families, and the ties to the Japanese Tea Ceremony.

Sprinkled throughout the book are excellent examples of Raku artwork from a variety of artists. A wide variety of shapes, forms, glazes, and techniques are all detailed and described.

There is also a nice collection of glaze recipes along with application methods and testing techniques.

There is a section that talks about Raku kilns and burners and some basic information on how to build them.

Finally there is an introduction into the firing and post-firing techniques that are used in Raku.

Overall it is a very nice introduction to Raku with a very nice gallery of pieces to inspire you to create your own works of art.
