Texture of a typical raku body after throwing
This is Plainsman Raku. It has 18% 35-65 mesh grog, 65% Plainsman A3 buff stoneware clay, 14% Pyrax and 3% bentonite.
Gas fired rustic ceramic ware is cooled from red-hot in a closed container with organic material. The zero-oxygen atmosphere produced reduces carbonate metal decoration to its metallic form.
