Raku is a technique that is simple in concept, requires rudimentary firing facilities, and is easy to do. A deeper understanding of the process along with experimentation and higher expectations can yield sophisticated colors, textures and surfaces not necessarily recognized as “raku.” Steven will show slides of his work, studio, raku history and contemporary raku pottery survey, as well as selections from his wide-ranging personal clay collection. He will demonstrate his throwing and forming techniques including his personal surface treatments, inlaid colored glass technique, narrow neck vase shapes, one-handed throwing and expanding forms from the inside out, glazing and raku firing. Throughout the weekend Steven will talk about his life, career and experiences as a student, potter, teacher, writer and businessman. Bring your questions and don’t forget your cameras and notebooks! No experience with raku is necessary.
