Seductively shimmering surfaces, burnished to a soft sheen as satin as skin... Naked Raku. Technically more complex in possibilities than meets the eye, this two week focus study will endeavor to unveil the mysteries, and thoroughly explore the length and breadth of Naked Raku. From finding suitable forms hand-built or wheel thrown, to burnishing, applying resistant slip, patterning surfaces in the simplest or the most intricate detail, smoking, and polishing-- each participant will become a budding expert in every nuance of practical knowledge, enough to commence an exploration of a lifetime. Gaya Ceramic's vast archive of Naked Raku production samples will enhance and inspire everyone's palette of possibilities...
Open to all levels of experience.
