RAKU: PRIVATE RAKU PARTIES AVAILABLE - A great team-building experience!

Raku sessions are finished for the winter, but will begin again in spring.


Raku is a centuries old pottery glazing and firing process which generally produces a lustrous, often metallic, finish. TIAC's raku firing experience is designed to give you a feel for that ancient process. Bisque fired pieces will be available to choose from and you'll then glaze the pieces you've chosen before they go into the outdoor kiln to be fired. Feel free to bring snacks and drinks to enjoy while your glazed pieces are being fired. Call Kathy for pricing at 315-686-4123, x205 or stop by and chat with her in the pottery studio.
