Naked Raku Pots by Scott Tubby
Scott Tubby is masterful with Naked Raku. Learn his techniques in this hands on workshop with demonstrations and firing.
Naked Raku is a contemporary variation of the Raku firing technique but instead of using a glaze we will apply slip to the bisqued pots, fire them in a Raku kiln, remove when hot, smoke in sawdust or newspaper in a closed container and then quench with water which pops off the slip to reveal pattern.
Friday November 18, 6-8pm – Glazing
Sun November 20, 10am-4pm – Firing
Class limit is 8 students. Some clay experience helpful.
Up to 6 pieces as large as a cantaloupe.
Most shapes work (best not to make platters). Just keep them simple without appendages which can easily chip or break.
Surface can be plain clay, burnished or terra sidged. ANY clay works. Scott uses porcelain but stoneware works and terracotta provides a beautiful background color.
*Pieces should be bisqued to c/012 for the workshop.
*(Lexicon will be happy to bisque your pieces for an additional $10. Pieces must be dropped off to Lexicon Studio by Saturday November 12 at 1pm.
