http://rakupottery.ca According to the ancients, the first matter was a four fold structure that consisted of Fire, Earth, Air and Water. We use all of these elements to create our work. Earth (clay) is our base, water helps us to shape and form that base, air dries the clay and fire transforms the glaze to create magic. We use a number of techniques to achieve the results we do, including Raku, wood firing and more conventional methods. We are located on Canada's beautiful east coast, in the province of Nova Scotia on a retreat with gardens, forest and not far from the sea. We love the transformational process of pottery and making earth into art and functional wares. We also offer lessons for those in the area who may be interested, or are open to visiting would be artists who would like to try their hand at pottery.
