RAKU KILNS Sheffield Pottery is the place to find gas and electric Raku Kilns. Raku kilns are specialized kilns for raku pottery firing. Raku is an ancient Japanese technique that has been rediscovered by
modern potters who appreciate its unique beauty and metallic luster and
colors. The raku process involves reducing (starving the oxygen) the
glazed raku pottery in combustible materials such as leaves, sawdust,
newspaper, etc. When the pieces are ready to take out of the kiln, they
are placed in galvanized trash containers with combustible materials
and covered. Once the pieces are cooled down, they are removed from the
washed and reveal the rich warm effects of raku.
