Northwest Style Raku

The Pacific Northwest is rugged, cultured, diverse...and home.

The four seasons are a vast color wheel at Spirit Line Pottery Studio.

From the texture of mountains to the fluidity of wild surf,

It's all there in the clay.

Raku O-Pots, Unglazed Orchid Pottery

From the noble kilns of Japan

during the 1600's...

The Raku family first developed the art of taking ceramics red-hot from the

kiln then tempering them with natural elements: fire, smoke, air and water.

Raku Kiln 1850* F

The imperfections or scars left on the pieces from burning

pine needles, newspaper, wood shavings & the welding tongs,

become the organic designs that make raku collectible.

The bare raku pottery is blackened from the primitive

oxygen reduction process while the glazes react in unusual ways.

The resulting patinas on glazed raku can change (oxidize)

over the years adding to the aesthetic value.

Modern American raku is not used for food or water,

but orchids and air plants love the carbon infusion!
