Disclaimer: Objects made with Raku firing glazes are decorative only, not food-safe.

“Raku is a Japanese style of pottery first made during the 1580s; the practice is characterized by the removal of a clay object from the kiln at the height of the firing and causing it to cool very rapidly. Originally created for the tea ceremony, Raku ware is most commonly found in the form of tea bowls.”
