This unique pottery is usually wheel thrown, often altered, burnished by hand and fired in an electric kiln. The pots are then glazed, decorated with various slips and stains and fired again, often multiple times, in a raku kiln to 1850 degrees Fahrenheit. At this point, each pot is removed and immersed in a mixture of combustible materials. This process imparts a rich black luster as well as a variety of effects created by the smoke and flames.
