We organize open air ceramic sessions in the old Japanese ceramic art raku.
Raku technique comes from Japan, its origins in the seventeenth century. Raku means enjoyment and satisfaction. This technique has recently spread throughout the world. In spring and autumn We prepare small ceramic objects, decorate them with special glazes containing oxides, during a one-day outdoor session. After decoration we burn them and give it to the reduction. This timeless technique always meets with great enthusiasm of the participants of the outdoor sessions.
