Look Around Lubbock: Raku Days

_DSC9717.jpgThe Helen DeVitt Jones Clay Studio at LHUCA is offering Raku Days Friday from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. to give the community an opportunity to decorate and glaze pots that have been made by local ceramic artists. Then, watch the ancient process of Raku. Raku is a type of low-firing process that was inspired by traditional Japanese firing. Western-style Raku usually involves removing pottery from the kiln while at bright red heat and placing it into containers with combustible materials. The studio is available to the public through a variety of classes, workshops, and programs. The studio has 14 wheels, 6 kilns, 2 clay mixers, pug mill, slab roller, and clay extruder.
