Lustre Raku Thrown Pot 0180


Description

"Raku" is really an honorific title given to a particular Japanese potter (and by inheritance, his family). When the technique was brought to the west, the artists incorrectly then (but acceptable now) used the term Raku for the name of the technique.

When this mistaken use was pointed out, in deference to their Japanese colleagues, western artists for a time used instead the term "alternative firing". Today (just like with "hoover" instead of vacuum cleaner, or "googling" instead of searching) it is has become acceptable by common useage.

Approx Size: 3½x5in 9x14cm
Price: £45 (including VAT & delivery)
