We got up early on Wednesday 29th July…..it was a Raku firing day! It was forecast to rain in the afternoon and there was quite a queue of pots ready to be fired. It is possible to raku in the rain….but it’s not as much fun. A raku firing is more of an event, there is lots to do, lots of anticipation and lots and lots of smoke. Two of the pots to be fired were wedding presents and having left making them until the last minute (one week before the wedding) there was also a bit of pressure for them turn out well.
