DescriptionRaku is a technique for firing ceramics - rapid heating to usually around 1100°C 2000°F, then with rapid cooling, sometimes using water.
Copper Matt is so called because of the high proportion of copper oxide present in the glaze. A master of the technique aims to reduce it all to copper, and then to re-oxidise it just enough for the wonderful hues of this style to take and be frozen into the pot.
When throwing a pot destined for the copper-matt treatment, I always take into account how thin the walls are because the colours depend upon the rate of cooling—and the thickness changes that rate.
You could say, I pot through thick and thin!
