Ceramics students learn art of raku firing

Hannibal High School ceramics students recently sparked their studies thanks to a raku firing demonstration by Clayscapes Pottery.
The pottery business provided equipment that transformed the students’ clay pieces into glazed, finished ceramic works of art. Using a kiln heated to 1,800 degrees, glazes began to bubble and melt. Once heated to the desired temperature, the pieces were removed from the kiln and placed into a reduction chamber before being cooled in water and brought to room temperature.
According to ceramics teacher Lauren Boyer, raku firing offers students with “instant gratification art.”
“This is a special alternative firing that produces immediate results,” Boyer said. “Rather than waiting 24 hours, they see the finished product in minutes.”
