"extreme firing techniques"

For a year we experimented with the "rakuvaria extrem" clay.

In this booklet you will find 80 pages of inspiration for working with special firing techniques:

  • Raku firing in the raku kiln without biscuit firing first
  • Yes, even raku firing, also with glaze, in a open fire, so without a raku kiln is possible!
  • Freshly made work firing within 3 hours in a oven, open fire, fireplace, etc.
  • Even freshly made work will be fired within 1 hour in a microwave at 1000 degrees celcius etc. etc.

  • In this booklet also tips for wich other types of clay this way of working also can be applied
