S.P.A.C.E. Studios Presents Raku for You

When translated the word Raku can mean joy, enjoyment, pleasure, comfort, happiness, or contentment. According to Rubens Raku, the word “Raku” originates from the ideograph engraved on a gold seal dedicated to the founder Chojiro from the first generation of the Raku dynasty in the 16thcentury.

Raku Pots

Chojiro created tea bowls for tea ceremonies using the Raku firing technique which involves bisque ware being glazed and heated in extremely high temperatures.  Now that you know the history of raku, seize the opportunity to experience a firing in person at S.P.A.C.E. Studios. Participants have the option to bring their own bisque ware to glaze, or purchase a pot from the studio.

10$ per piece fired (small pieces)
