The technique used in making Raku pottery originated in 16th century Japan. Raku means "happiness","enjoyment", "comfort" or "ease" and is derived from Jurakudai, the name of a palace, in Kyoto. In the 16th century, Sen Rikyu, the Japanese tea master, was involved with the construction of the Jurakudai and had a tile-maker, named Chojiro, produce hand-mulded tea bowls for use in the wabi-styled tea ceremony that was Rikyu's ideal. The resulting tea bowls made by Chojiro were referred to as Juraku-yaki. Raku then became the name of the family that produced the wares. Both the name and the ceramic style have been passed down through the family to the present 15th generation.

Decorated with low-fire glazes, the pieces are quickly heated to red hot temperature in a kiln. The vessels are then quickly removed from the kiln and placed into a canister of combustibles such as dried leaves, wood shavings or paper. This material catches on fire causing variations in the glazes on the vessels. As the fire consumes the oxygen within the can, it also draws the oxygen out of the raku pottery and its glaze. It is this stage that creates the unique look of raku pottery. The glaze reacts with various elements in the container, creating flashes of color and a shiny luster which produce a range of finishes including striking metallic and a beautiful, crackle finish.

Raku produces extrordinary results which can never be exactly duplicated. The mixture of different temperatures and a broad range of chemical elements make Raku pottery special as each piece is unpredictably unique.
