Made in South Africa, this fair trade range of Raku pottery is imported from a small family owned business.

The ancient Japanese method of Raku firing leads itself to creating unique African inspired pottery.  Each piece is removed from the gas kiln at 950 C and placed in sawdust.  The glaze crazes are blackened by the smouldering sawdust.  This process is largely uncontrolled and the slight imperfections that appear in the glaze are all part of the attraction and excitement of raku firing.

Each piece of Raku pottery passes through the hands of at leaset eight different skilled crafters, many of whom etch or paint their initial on the bottom of each item - making it a truly unique "one of a kind".

Raku or Rakuyaki originally referred to a type of earthenware used in the Japanese Tea Ceremony.
