Raku in japanese means happiness, wellness and fun. It’s an antique japanese technique realted with the tea ceremony that provides a particular decoration. The objects are first egobed, then enamelled, finally cooked in a conventional manner. After an abrupt cooling, the vase is reducted with fire and the layer of the engobe detaches revealing the bare surface (naked) of the object crossed by a crackle black.
